Facebook is set to become even more invasive, with a new feature undergoing testing with a pop-up asking users to post updates about their lives.

The world’s biggest social network is testing a new feature for iPhones that pops up reminders to post a status update.

US Facebook user Bijan Sabet, general partner at venture capital company Spark Capital was one of the first to notice it, with the employee tweeting a screenshot of his iPhone with a Facebook notification:

"Bijan, tell friends what's on your mind. Post an update".

Sabet posted a screenshot of the comment with just one word, "Seriously?"

A Facebook spokesperson described the feature as a "small test we're running".

Fingers crossed the extra updates don’t make it through the beta stage to general use.

The move follows a full redesign of Facebook, which has received a much more positive reaction earlier this month.
