WTF Happened with my Facebook Settings?

December 23, 2009 Leave a comment

I just posted on a couple of my friends’ walls and to my surprise, my public news feed is displaying my own posts on the wall which is weird but also what’s pissing me off even more is the fact that the news feed notifications are being published. I am pissed off at Facebook for implementing these stupid privacy updates about a week ago and just today it seems as if all my privacy and account settings were reset. I had to go and change them back to normal and now I can’t find the stupid settings to stop the news feed from showing my wall posts to everyone. I don’t know what the fuck just happened between now and five hours ago which was the last time I posted on a friend’s wall. Half my live News feed is flooded with messages I just wrote to my friends. Isn’t the feed supposed to show you stuff that your friends are doing? Not stuff that you know you are doing? I don’t want to go on Facebook and on my news feed, I see that I wrote to my friend a couple of seconds ago, I already know that. WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SHIT!?!?!?

So far, this is what I’ve done to make my stuff more private, settings –> Privacy Settings –> profile information –> Posts by Me. I changed it to ‘Only Me’ I will see what that does but this is my quick fix right now. I still see my own posts flooding my wall…this is REALLY pissing me off.

I remember back in the day when everyone started to get concerned about their privacy and they all went to the Facebook settings to un-check pretty much every setting/option in the news feed/wall section. Unfortunately, it’s not there any more and I have no clue where the fuck to go to stop my news feed from displaying every single thing that I do over Facebook. ARGGH I’m fed up with this site. I might just go and start using Twitter now, that’s what all the cool old people do now a days; it’s the Facebook for old people as I would like to say it.

As a wise, disgruntled, man once said, “FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU”
