Today, Facebook has changed one of the most sensitive issues on its site - privacy. But in some cases to the worse.
Facebook has launched the long expected privacy settings and the ability to post to different groups of people, include them or not include them. This on it’s own is great, but:
Is Facebook losing itself for a unnecessary crusade against Twitter?
I understand, that Twitter has launched its realtime searches with Google and Bing, and that’s great, and that’s a great thing to battle. But come on, is this really what Facebook is after? Facebook is about relationship, friendship, and connection. Twitter is tiny compared to Facebook, they dont have to battle it – they are different.
I understand Facebook is also trying to get to real-time search, but is it really necessary to push 350 million users and promote them to stream content publically? Facebook is not Myspace, it has closed profiles.
Don’t get me wrong, I love that I can see realtime search, but I hate Facebook promotes this as the default version, and if you have it by default set to everyone, then you can’t set it differently for example in the mobile version.
Deleting previous privacy settings
Another thing is, Facebook has deleted some of the previous privacy settings deployed. So currently I am not able to filter likes, comments, or other things I previously hidden. See more in the Allfacebook article.
