Related News: Facebook removes a privacy setting you might have been using

One new article link has been added to our Related News page. NBC News published an article titled Facebook removes a privacy setting you might have been using.

Facebook has removed a certain privacy setting from the accounts of “a small percentage of people” still using it: from now on, there is no way to prevent your Timeline from coming up when someone searches for you by name. But it’s not as dire as it sounds.

The setting allowed a user to control whether their name would appear when other users typed it into the search box. For instance, if Bob Smith set it to “no one,” (as opposed to “friends of friends” for instance) his profile wouldn’t appear when others searched for “Bob Smith” (although other Bob Smiths might).
