Facebookers don't always trust their beloved social network with their privacy. To keep users happy, Facebook has overhauled its privacy settings, as they describe in a blog post, making them more transparent than ever before, giving us "one of the largest privacy overhauls in its history" believes Mashable's Ben Par. This is exciting for people who distrust Facebook and want more control over who sees what. But unfortunately, as they say, with more power comes more... annoying privacy settings to toggle. But luckily for you, we're here for you to help you through the changes.
The newest privacy settings affect two aspects of your Facebook experience: Stuff that shows up on your profile and what happens when you post something new.
Stuff that shows up on your profile.
Before anyone could tag a photo of you and you really had no choice. Now you get to approve any potential taggings. And even if non-friends tag you, you have to approve it before it goes shows up in your photo stream. If you like the idea that you get to veto every heinous double chin shot before the world sees it, you have to manually turn on this setting. To do so, head to the "Manage How Tags Work" section of your privacy settings and turn on "Profile Review."
