Facebook has release new privacy settings to some of us (you’ll be seeing it soon if you don’t already). These new settings are an attempt to be more like Google+ (where you can share with one specific people). When you log in to Facebook you’ll see a pop up inviting you to learn about the new settings:
When you’re updating your status there are three new options below the status box.
- One for who you want to share with
- one for your location
- and one for your privacy for the post
My problem is that I can’t share a post with a list of friends – I have to choose individual people which is kind of annoying and hard for someone like me who follows hundreds of librarians. I guess it’s a step in the right direction, but not as easy to use as circles in Google+.
