Facebook to end privacy feature, makes everybody searchable on site

Wellington, Oct. 11 (ANI): Facebook is reportedly ending a privacy feature that allowed users to restrict who can search for them on the site.

The social media giant said that it was removing that setting that controlled whether users could be found when people type their names in the search bar, as only a single-digit percentage of the total 1.2 billion people on the site were using the setting, stuff.co.nz reports.

Facebook said that those who are concerned about the privacy can use their settings to limit the audience for their posts about themselves. (ANI)
