    Hi all ..

    For those who have facebook, was lookin for a bit of help... all the privacy settings have changed etc.. so have two questions hope someone can explain :thumbup:

    1) Click Settings-- Privacy Settings-- Contact Information ..
    Then where it says "website" .. What have you got yours set as??
    *Everyone
    *Friends of friends
    *Only friends
    *Customize

    I dont understand what the "Website" means :dohh:
    Anyone know??



    2) Click Settings-- Privacy Settings--Applications & websites--What your friends can share about you

    Do you have all the boxes UNTICKED ??

    What about the indexing? Did u uncheck the box for that? So your stuff cant be found in google. It's under settings, privacy, search, and then unclick the clicked indexing box. If it's different from the one u are talkin about. Sneeky buggers they are arnt they!!!
