The clock is ticking on my time on Facebook. It’s nice to be connected and share with friend and family but when greed trumps privacy, it’s time to chuck the deuce… tick, tock, tick, tock…
Facebook is getting rid of a privacy feature that let users limit who can find them on the social network.
Facebook Inc. said Thursday that it is removing a setting that controls whether users could be found when people type their name into the website’s search bar.
The change comes as Facebook is building out its search feature, which people often use to find people they know – or want to know – on the site.
Facebook, which is based in Menlo Park, Calif., says users can protect their privacy by limiting the audience for each thing they post about themselves.
