Facebook's privacy options
The privacy tools are there, but the challenge is getting enthusiastic Facebookers to use them.
Facebook users -- and their managers -- who are concerned about keeping control of their information should get themselves over to the social network's Privacy Settings page without delay.
While Facebook has recently revamped its interface and provided new ways for users to filter information, the new options make it easier to control what you see from others, not what you reveal to them. The ways you control outgoing information -- the news you "publish," in new Facebook-speak -- haven't changed.
You get to them from the Settings --> Privacy Settings menu, which presents choices for Profile (who can see your personal and contact information, including videos and photographs you're tagged in); Search (what will be visible to Facebook's Search function); News Feeds and Wall (which of your posts and comments can be seen by other people); and Applications (what information will be available to Facebook applications you add).
