How Facebook’s New Privacy Changes Will Affect You

  • tags: facebook, privacy

    • However, for Facebook‘s user base, now 350 million strong, the updates represent a major overhaul as to how privacy is handled on the site.
    • Change #1: No More Regional Networks
    • Change #2: Control Who Sees Each Piece of Individual Content You Add or Upload
    • At the moment, when you click the “Share” button, who sees that content is governed by settings tucked away under a cavalcade of menus (Settings -> Privacy Settings -> Profile -> Status and Links.)
    • Change #3: A Simplified Privacy Page
    • How the Transition Will Occur
    • With the Transition Tool, users are prompted to pick from different privacy level options like “open,” “recommended,” or “limited.” According to the recent post, the recommended settings will be based on your current level of privacy but you’ll be able to read through the other options to make changes if you so desire.

I have a earlier blog post about Facebook earlier, and the precautions people (especially teachers) need to take.

For people who really like Facebook, there is an improved version: Facebook Lite. It does not show the mass generated messages that you do not care about – game updates like Mafia Wars, Farmville, or the obnoxious quiz results. The Lite version goes back the roots of Facebook being about connecting to friends.
