Facebook makes changes to privacy settings - Fox 28: South Bend, Elkhart IN News, Weather, Sports

Facebook makes changes to privacy settings

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.
