    Facebook overhauling its privacy settings

    Just seen that Facebook are introducing new privacy controls, much like those in Google+ where you can target posts to different groups. This is obviously a good thing, but I can't help but think it'll increase the complexity of the privacy settings again, but we'll see.

    I don't get this fuss, you have been able to make posts only visible etc to people and groups for at least 6 months if not longer so whats the fuss?

    I agree, and I don't think it is all that difficult either. I have never found the privacy settings complicated to understand!

    The bigger problem is that they keep fiddling, and each fiddle opens the user (esp. the non-IT literate) to some new hole.
