    Default Facebook policy change leaves users with nowhere to hide

    link- http://news.yahoo.com/facebook-polic...183044983.html



    Facebook users who prefer to lurk in the shadows will not be terribly pleased to learn of a new change to Facebook’s privacy settings that is currently in the process of being rolled out. Facebook users until now have had the option to hide their accounts from the website’s search service. Enabling the setting would mean that their profiles would not be included in search results even when people search for them by name. This will no longer be the case once Facebook removes the privacy option in question, however. Facebook says that the new change will only impact a single-digit percentage of its user base, but we’re not sure how comforting that is. Considering Facebook is currently home to about 1.2 billion users, that means this change could impact more than 100 million people around the world.

    I never knew of this option, looks like facebook is becoming more open and taking out less privacy.

    You didn't even read the whole article. Know how I know? You used the word discrete. Either you don't know what that means, or you didn't read the article. I can believe you have a basic grasp of English, so it's probably the latter. Stop spamming to up your post count and points.

    I am past my post count and I read what is below under the picture. I didn't mean to use the word "discrete" I meant to say they are becoming more open where there is no privacy anymore. JL, I don't spam and I use facebook which is why I gave my comment to this article.
