 Facebook quietly introduced new functionality onto its site last week that could have some worried about their online privacy.
 
The social network is rolling out the ability to see if and when someone has seen a post on a Facebook group.

One wonders if this is a slippery slope, and whether Facebook will consider introducing the (desired by many, and dreaded by the privacy conscious and anonymous snoopers) ability to tell who has been checking out your Facebook profile?
 
When TechCrunch asked Facebook if the "Seen by" functionality would be ported over to the news feed, the site said it was "not going to discuss what we might (or might not) do in the future."
