Here’s the skinny on the ever-changing Facebook features:
1. Tag People You’re Not Friends With, Pages You Don’t Like–Before, you couldn’t tag someone in your posts unless you were Facebook friends with them. Now, Facebook is doing away with this rule and will allow users to tag people they’re not friends with, or pages they haven’t “liked,” though users will be required to approve tags from non-friends before they appear on their profiles.
2. Control Who Tags You And Who Tags Your Posts– Facebook will now let users review photos or posts they have been tagged in before the images or updates show up on their profiles. “You can choose the new tool to approve or reject any photo or post you are tagged in before it’s visible to anyone else on your profile,” notes Facebook in a blog post about the privacy update.
3. Adjust Who Sees What You Post At The Same Time That You Post It–Users will now have the ability to edit their privacy settings in the same place that they edit their profile information and post status updates. Previously, Facebook required users to edit their profile information in one place (by clicking “Edit Profile”) and edit their privacy settings in another. With the new inline controls, users can do both in the same place.
4. Do More When You Detag–Facebook will also offer users more information when they choose to detag a photo or post. Now, Facebook will display a window with details about what occurs when the tag is removed and the option to take additional action–specifically, a user can choose to remove the tag, ask the person who uploaded the photo to remove it, or block the user who uploaded the photo.
5. See What Your Profile Looks Like To Others–Facebook has put the ability to see how your profile appears to other users (say, friends, friends of friends, or people you have sorted into a particular group) front and center on users’ profile pages.
6. ‘Everyone’ Becomes ‘Public’– Facebook is making a naming change , changing “everyone” to “public”.
7. When You’ll Get It– These changes will begin rolling out on Thursday, August 25th.
