Facebook's Graph Search bars adults snooping for minors
In an effort to quell privacy fears, the social network rolls out rules on how its search tool displays results for users under the age of 18.
Facebook launched Graph Search in beta in January. Seen as the social network's search tool, it offers users new ways to uncover people, places, photos, and interests that have been buried alive inside the social network. However, it also exposes a copious amount of personal data that members may not realize is available for public scrutiny.
Manage Your Activity Log: Activity log makes it easy to see the things you've posted on Facebook, make changes to the audience of past photos and other posts, and choose what appears on your Timeline. We recently announced some new tools that make it easier to take action on multiple photos, such as untagging them, or requesting that they are removed with one click. If you are ever concerned who can see content you have posted or shared on Facebook, review it on your Activity Log.
