Polish digital games storefront GOG.com has announced new social features for its platform.
In a blog post, the firm revealed that users would now be able to have profiles, which show what consumers' friends are playing and the like.
This is divided across four sections: Feed, Profile, Games and Friends.
Feed is, you guessed it, a news feed of what's going on around a particular user. That includes what games their friends are playing, what achievements are being unlocked, thoughts, screenshots and forum activity. This is essentially a Facebook for games type set-up.
The Profile section shows information about a user, including time spent on games achievements - it's a summary of user activity. The Games section is -ding ding ding you guessed again - a list of what titles a user has been playing, and whether their friends are able to join them in-game.
And finally, there's the Friends tab, where users can see what their mates have been up to.
As you'd expect in a post Cambridge Analytica and GDPR world, this cese new social features come with a bevvy of privacy settings which let users determine what they want to share.
This news comes just a week after Steam owner Valve opted to make user profiles private by default. This is likely a reaction to the aforementioned privacy scandal, as well as new data protection regulations in Europe. A side effect of this was third-party data firm SteamSpy announcing it might have to close its doors as public profiles was how it obtained its information.
