Facebook is about to change. Oh, you’ll still get surprising friend requests from obscure 3rd grade classmates but the site dedicate to public sharing is about to get more private thanks to new privacy settings that will allow you to decide, update by update, who gets to see what you’re doing.

It’s a valuable tool in managing your privacy, at least to a certain degree. At the same time, however, Facebook still has access to all your data and it pays its bills by tailoring advertising to you based on the information you provide. And if you install a third party app to play a game or something, those outside developers have access to your information as well.
