Facebook has again adjusted its privacy controls, which it seems to do every couple of months. That does not mean users are better protected, just more confused.

In other words, that tightrope walk is going to continue, so it’s up to you to keep an eye on your own privacy. To force Facebook to reveal what information it stores about you, follow the instructions here.
