Continuing its efforts to educate its users about its privacy and security settings, some users who click on privacy settings in the pull-down menu that appears in the top-right-hand corner of every Facebook page are seeing another page labeled “where to find,” which highlights changes to the social network’s security settings.
Two new sections were highlighted: instant personalization, and public search.
And the public search section allows users to preview what their timeline profiles look like to anyone performing a public search, enabling them to choose whether their timelines should be public or private, but apparently eliminating the option of allowing friends of friends to see the results.
Readers: Are these changes visible to you?
Thank you to Ticular Principal Ulrike Ruppelt for the tip and screen shots.
