Facebook’s Privacy Settings To Improve Updates, Photos, Check-ins, etc.

Ruben Quinones Ruben Quinones August 29, 2011 Category Social Media

Facebook in the last few days unveiled some major improvements for segmenting what and how you share on individual posts. See below on a few changes I noticed.

You now have the ability to tag friends and non friends, as well as location via your  desktop, a feature that will enhance their location services.  Users tagged can control how they are tagged and are asked if they would like to be removed.

An improvement I have been waiting on and is comparable with Google Circles is the ability to segment your content, location, photos by including/excluding your status update by friends, and lists.  Not sure why “Every One” was changed to “Public”, but I assume it was to simplify it for users who might want to explore this feature a little more.  The neatest thing about this roll out is the ability to go back to old posts and change the share settings on that individual piece of content.

Of course what I am really waiting for is a similar feature on Facebook’s business page status updates, which are currently limited to segmenting by location and languages.  For now, further segmentation is only available via Facebook ads.  For a full tutorial of sharing your posts on Facebook, check out their sharing guide.
