Facebook user? Privacy warning

#1
Got this at feck o'clock today.

If you don't know, as of today, Facebook will automatically index all your info on Google, which allows everyone to view it. To change this option, go to Settings --> Privacy Settings --> Search --> then UN-CLICK the box that says 'Allow indexing'.

Facebook kept this one quiet. Copy and paste onto your status for all your friends ASAP

I haven't been able to check it on Hoax Slayer but better safe etc

Bloody hell. Phew!

This is what I got emailed:

If you don't know, as of today, Facebook will automatically tap into your brain and reveal all your memories of that time with the Dutch Housewife and the Cattle prod. To change this option, go to Memory Bank --> Privacy Settings --> Mumbling Drunk --> Search --> then UN-CLICK the box that says 'Allow all my hidden secrets out when I'm wankered'. Facebook kept this one quiet. You should to. He He!See More

You are a mug if you use Facebook anyway. I use it to promote my business and that is all. I cannot understand these people who put all their details and stuff on it and then complain when they find their pics doctored and all over the internet and stuff.

It's the easy way to stalk people you went to school with.

They've been doing google indexing for years, since at least 2007 for a start.

I use it mainly to keep in touch with people that I've met along the way with the job. People from my old regiment, people who have got out. Adresses and phone numbers change all the time, but it is handy to have that way to keep in touch.

Besides anything else, it saves me a fortune on phone bills.

I use it to keep in touch with a few bods I've served with who are now in Germany and the US. However the new settings now display your friend list to the World (you weren't given an option on this when it was done) - or anyone who happens to be looking anyway. Not a big deal, but not something I'm over comfortable with either. Does anyone know how to turn this off?
