Facebook makes changes to privacy settings

Posted:
Facebook is trying to make its users feel safer. 

It's making some tweaks to its privacy settings, so new users will automatically have theirs for a status update default to "friends" instead of "public."

And soon, those who've been on Facebook for a while will be prompted to give their privacy settings a glance.

In the past, Facebook's been criticized for hard-to-understand privacy controls.
