Facebook Improves Privacy Settings For Friend Lists

Other than Beacon (which has thankfully improved over the months), the biggest thing that irks me about Facebook is its confusing and hard-to-manage privacy settings. Say you only want a certain someone to see your photo albums, and only want to share your mini-feed with family members, it can be a painstaking task to try and tweak the privacy settings for each person on your friends list.

Mark Zuckerberg hasn't been ignoring the requests to improve Facebook's privacy settings, because starting today, you'll be able to give different groups of friends access to various pieces of info on your Facebook page. The New York Times reports that these new group privacy controls allow users to send messages to selected friends or filter what personal details various groups can see. Now let's see if it actually works! And what about the rumor that Facebook is launching a new IM chat feature? All true. Stay tuned for its launch in the next few weeks, with no additional software to download.

Honestly, sounds like all this new privacy settings are going to cause issues between people. Example: check out what ^^ longhorn_sugar said. And what's with myspace and now facebook launching IM'ing programs? What's msn, yahoo, aim and ichat all really for??? haha Too much of a good thing is really not that great...

i've tinkered around with the new privacy settings for the past hour, and it's a bit challenging. it will def. take a while to set appropriate privacy settings.and how does one respond when they realize they've been put on a restricted access? when i found out that someone limited profile-d me, i was so mad! i thought we were friends!
