The all-new Facebook Reconnect feature is designed to remind you to get in touch with friends you may not have spoken with in awhile with a suggestion box that links to said friends' profiles. While its creation was no doubt inspired with the best of intentions at heart, Twitter users are speaking out against Facebook Reconnect in droves.

A quick search on Twitter confirms that the Facebook Reconnect feature has been suggesting that users reconnect with their spouses, ex-girlfriends, and deceased friends and family members. It's tough to say whether the Facebook Reconnect feature will fly or fizzle, but one thing's for certain: Not all algorithms are created equal.
