    Heads Up - Facebook messages to become public!

    Bad news for those who are worried about employers looking at your facebook page. Better move all those tailgating pictures to your harddrives.

    No biggie, just means that we have to go in and chose to make our pages secured.

    Yeah, but this is getting a tad bit ridiculous. I like Facebook and it is a quality time waster, but eventually it is going to get to the point where I remove my page and stop visiting the site.

    I think this is old news. It's only in beta right now.

    After reading, this is what I gather.

    When the new version comes into effect, you have to go back in an edit your privacy settings again, so only friends can view your page. When MySpace 2.0 came out, it made everyone's pages public, and you had to go back in and redo your privacy settings.

    Am I correct?

    This is pretty funny. Kinda stupid though. Not going to be fun for my little sister when my mom just so happens to fall across her page.

    People still use Facebook? Great example of a company diluting their product's core use/competency. So much crap to wade through now.

    Re: Heads Up - Facebook messages to become public!

    I'm pretty much done using Facebook. This gives me a reason to strip my profile down to nothing.

    I hope minors' sites are still set to private by default (I didn't read the entire article, so this may have been addressed).

    I really don't care because I don't put anything on Facebook that I am ashamed of.
