I couldn't find the thread that discussed privacy options on facebook, since it had gotten into specifics on how to set privacy options and the troubles that FB was having because it had outgrown its initial concept. Anyway, for those who are interested, they have updated their options. When you log into FB you will get this message: Privacy Announcement We're making some changes to give you more control of your information and help you stay connected. We've simplified the Privacy page and added the ability to set privacy on everything you share, from status updates to photos. At the same time, we're helping everyone find and connect with each other by keeping some information—like your name and profile picture—publicly available. The next step will guide you through choosing your privacy settings. You can learn more about how privacy works here. Hopefully, the new privacy options will better enable all of us to control who has access to our information.
