Facebook’s New Privacy Settings


This is kind of older news (as in more than four days old), but you may have seen Facebook’s new privacy settings on your account.  It’s caused a bit of a hubbub for some people – there’s concern about private information being available to the major search engines.  Is there truth to this?

Well – yes.  And the settings they asked you about were just a touch on the full privacy settings.  If you care about what’s freely available to the world, you’ll want to step in to the main privacy screen.  Here there are additional settings that Facebook didn’t display on that first update on the settings.

And there’s even more to it.  Danny Sullivan has gone through it all in explicit detail on his blog, in this listing.  I’d highly recommend going in and checking it out, to make sure you’re happy with what Facebook is showing the world.
