Several versions of Facebook have followed in recent years, and the rules have changed … sometimes discreetly. Do you know for example that is able to see your Facebook friends on the net? Only your friends or anyone on the Internet? Here’s how to make sure, and possibly restrict the exposure of your private life
Facebook is a social network with variable geometry. You can choose to show your personal information (photos, statuses, friends, etc.) in a very small circle, or rather to the world. If you believe that your privacy is watching you, your family or your friends, so why not go check your Facebook account is set as well? Especially an adjustment made years ago may now be obsolete, if you’re past a Facebook version to another without much looking at the details.
As the Facebook interface is not always more ergonomic (sic), here’s how to access the settings for the visibility of your friends list (the other visibility options are in “Privacy settings”).
