We all see all sorts of warnings about what Facebook is or is not doing that are actually untrue. Facebook privacy is always a big issue. When the latest started people said it was untrue, but then people started actually finding it was real. Some sort of Facebook mishap has caused some past PRIVATE MESSAGES on Facebook to end up in your PUBLIC TIMELINE available for anyone to see. Now granted they were not right at the top of your page, but they are still there and many people have some very interesting conversations in private messages that they would not want others to see.
What has really surprised me about this was how little I saw of people talking about it. Within my circle of blogging friends I saw discussion, but not much outside of them. This is one of those things that you can easily fix and share the how-to with friends and family. It takes maybe 5 minutes of your time to complete the steps.
CoolMomTech has outlined how to fix this in easy step-by-step instructions (thank you Type-A Mom for pointing her post out). Just take your time to read how and it will be over before you know it! Make sure to share with your friends and family also because even if you correct it on your account, your private messages with them may still show up on their account if they do not fix this also.
