Facebook adds family links to profiles

Facebook has made more changes to a user's profile page by adding the option to list your Facbooking family members for all to see.

"You already could specify if you were in a romantic relationship with someone, so why not also be able to list your parents, children and siblings?", a Facebook staffer asks in a blog post.

Facebook explains: "You'll begin seeing a new 'Family Members' section within the Information tab on your profile. Enter your mother, for example, and she'll be added to your profile. She'll also be sent a request that appears similar to a relationship request. Once she confirms, you'll then appear on her profile as well, and both of your profiles will be linked as shown below".

Any number of "immediate" family members can be added, including parents, siblings and children while an "extended" family section is said to be under consideration.
