By changing their policy Facebook has increased the value of posting content, through posts, to your personal network. Now anyone can find them.
Whilst B2B opinion suggests Facebook is still a private social network as opposed to LinkedIn/Twitter, at the expense of a few complaining friends you might just enable yourself to stand out from the crowd a little more in those important Google rankings and any Facebook searches.
LAST YEAR, FACEBOOK helpfully introduced a feature that made individual posts searchable, rather than just people and brands. At the time, search was limited to friends. Now, it includes all public posts, including yours, making this an excellent time for a Facebook privacy refresher.
