Supposedly they are giving you the ability to set it back to private each time you post? Is that what that article says? So when you hit the button when you update your status, is there going to be another option to change it?Yep. They are overriding your "privacy".
Yeah, my privacy settings are complicated, especially since my Mom thought it would be a great idea to join.I do. He asked to friend me. What was I supposed to do, ignore? So I use the privacy settings with a great deal of granularity, and I don't post anything I wouldn't want anyone to know.
You can delete posts from your own wall. I have a friend who likes the F word and I've had to delete a comment or two from her!Yeah, my privacy settings are complicated, especially since my Mom thought it would be a great idea to join.
I'm tempted to hit the delete button on my account just because it's too dangerous. I don't post anything I would be ashamed of if a boss, relative, or minister saw it, but you can't control what other people post. When I first joined in college, facebook was small and new. You had to have a college e-mail address to sign up, so in a sense it was more free and "safer" because it was a limited segment of the population that saw anything. Now, if some friend from college drunk posts some obscene or questionable thing on my wall it will be attributed to me simply because it's on my wall and now everyone and their mother may see it. I liked it because it was nice to keep in touch with friends, but I've discovered I have dangerous friends.
I know, but the problem is the news feed can pick things up pretty quickly, and lately I'm not able to get online for most of the day, so sometimes it's several hours before I see something. Primarily, I'm concerned about future employers. So long as they allow you to restrict your profile to friends or certain people then it's no big deal. It's just more of a hassle these days, growing pains for facebook I guess.You can delete posts from your own wall.

A whole bunch of the people who work for me have friended me - and another whole bunch of home office peers have also friended me.but really, who has their boss on fb? I don't even have co workers on there.
