More New Facebook Privacy Settings

If you haven't checked your Facebook settings recently, you'll note a new padlock icon next to your name on your individual profile. This latest release is intended to make it easier for you to control your privacy settings on your individual Facebook page.

FB_padlock.pngWhen you click on the padlock, you'll have options to choose who can see your profile, who can contact you and how you can block someone.

1. Who Can See My Stuff - You can:
A. Choose who sees your future posts (public, friends, lists or custom).
B. Review your past posts and things you're tagged in.
C. See how others see your timeline.
You can also make adjustments to any of these.

2. Who Can Contact Me
- Here you can choose and adjust inbox message filtering (strict or basic) and who can send you friend requests.

3. Blocking - Stop someone from being able to find you on Facebook or review those you've already blocked.

4. Other - There always has to be an other with Facebook privacy, right? If you click on "See More Settings," you can limit past posts, limit who can look you up and get hidden from search engines.
