Put off by prying eyes, people push for more privacy online

Put off by prying eyes, people push for more privacy onlineIt's a good time ot start thinking about your privacy. Instead of boycotting Facebook, why not use that day to figure out your friends online, your settings and what you really use FB for? Mark announced three settings, by default. Open to the world - name and status, friends of friends - pics, tags, writings on your wall, etc. and closed to friends only - contact info - cell, email, etc.
I think these are a good start. I am not crazy about having your status made public by default, especially for teens, but you can easily change that.
