Facebook Privacy Setting Removed
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
Your Facebook profile may no longer be as private as you think.
The social media site says it is axing a privacy setting that lets users hide their profiles from being searched.
Facebook says only a small percentage of people took advantage of the feature, and users could find each other using other ways despite the hiding option, like using a mutual friend's page.
The settting has already disappeared for some users.
