This week, Facebook is introducing a batch of tweaks that are all designed to “make it easier to share posts, photos, tags and other content with exactly the people you want.” Or, as the rest of us see it, make it easier to stop certain people from seeing posts, photos, tags and other content.
A lot of the change is all about clarifying the terminology so there’s no mistake. They’ve removed the word “everyone” as a sharing option and replaced it with “public” and even though they mean the same thing, “public” does feel more. . . well. . . public.
To make switching it up easier, Facebook is adding the functionality to a drop down alongside photos and status updates so you can assign items individually on the fly.
