Facebook Privacy Enhancements

Facebook Privacy EnhancementsI have been writing lately about how all of our life segments colliding on Facebook. Our weird cousin Elmo can comment and our uptight boss can see. Our church friends see our wild drunken bashes. Our children can see us ranting about financial pressures. The lines we can draw successfully between the different parts of our lives can;'t be drawn easily when we have one Facebook account and everyone can see everyone else.

Facebook has fixed that. You can select different settings for different subgroups. Only Thanksgiving pics go to cousin Elmo. Only hardworking comments to our boss. Our kids see family things, our drunken buddies don't.

Am thrilled about this!

Now we need ot get everyone to use them. :-)
