Facebook Has A New Update: It’s Time To Change Your Privacy Settings

If you’re a Facebook user, it’s time to look into your privacy settings with the new update for Facebook Search. Facebook recently announced a major update to their search feature, bringing it up on the competition with Google and Twitter. “Today, we’re updating Facebook Search so that in addition to friends and family, you can find out what the world is saying about topics that matter to you,” as mentioned on Facebook blog.

From Now on, in the search box, Facebook will offer personalized suggestions you might be interested in. “As you type, we’ll highlight things that are happening right now so you can follow popular stories as they unfold,” Tom Stocky, Facebook’s VP of Search wrote.

Besides your friend’s post, your search engine can returns results across all the users of public Facebook posts which are relevant. “Search results are organized to help you cut through the noise and quickly understand what the world is saying about a topic in the moment,” Stocky added.
Facebook makes it easier to make trending news accessible in real time. With one tap, you can see public posts and all relevant trending posts about it. Facebook hopes to improve it over time with user feedback as it is seen as the first step.

The tool is optimized to make Facebook posts relevant and widely sharable by media outlets, from CNN to Reddit, when they are at the heart of an unfolding viral moment. Theoretically, in a way it is like following a story as it unfolds in the heat of the moment as it is done on Twitter.

You might ask, “What does this new Facebook update mean to me?”

Here is the critical part – any public status or update can now be searchable worldwide, in real time with roughly any effort on behalf of the user.
Martin Stoehr, a Facebook user updated his status regarding the same. A search was made by us using ‘Search FYI’ and we found his quote in real time, “Last Year, Facebook helpfully introduced a feature that made individual posts searchable, rather than just people and brands. At the time search was limited to friends. Now, it includes all public posts, including yours, making this an excellent time for a Facebook privacy refresher.”

As a Facebook user, If you do not want your status updates (past, present, or future) to be easily searched and view-able by anyone in the world, now would be an excellent time to update your privacy settings; Please make sure your posts do not have the tiny “globe” icon next to it so that they are not set to ‘Public’ There is a setting you can change in Facebook to ensure that every post you made publicly in the past is changed to ‘Friends Only’.
