In order to give its users more control over sharing Facebook has launched a new “Privacy Check up” tool tweaking its default privacy settings. This new and expanded tool will be available to people already on Facebook, while new users on Facebook start with friends audience for posts.

The social networking giant has also turned off the controversial default setting that led many users to accidentally share their posts with the public rather with friends or a customised audience list.

“… going forward, when new people join Facebook, the default audience of their first post will be set to Friends. Previously, for most people, it was set to Public,” says Facebook in a post.

“First time posters will also see a reminder to choose an audience for their first post, and if they don’t make a choice, it will be set to Friends. People can change who they are posting to at any time, and can also change the privacy of their past posts too.”


“We want to do all we can to put power and control in people’s hands. This new tool is designed to help people make sure they are sharing with just the audience they want. Everything about how privacy works on Facebook remains the same,” adds Facebook.
