Since the incorporation of Facebook, it kept on facilitating its users with the new and entertaining features. With these features, where users like them as they get to know them, few got problem coping up with these features reason behind they are not as frequent Facebook users as others are. With enhanced features and options, Facebook kept on offering privacy options that are confusing as well though Facebook say it’s always upto you to decide what you want to share with whoever you like.

As Facebook change any privacy feature, it nags each of its users to review them all. Who got such time to spare for reading these reviews? No one, those who use them daily or those who don’t.

Facebook is just like a safe, where people put their photos, plans, and all the personal stuff, thinking saved stuff is secured in this iron safe and can only access by them or by whom they allow to do so. No doubt Facebook is a personal safe of oneself, but the difference is, it’s a glass-made safe if you do not know the privacy options, where every user can access you and your personal information, that you suppose shared with your dear ones only.

New Facebook search tool allow strangers, unknown to you to get to know about you, your likes and where you went to. You can also be easily observed by marketers who kept on observing your facebook search behaviors and can utilize that information for their advertisements.

Who should we blame for these issues???? Facebook authorities? Who always justify themselves with clear privacy reviews readable to its users whenever they change them. Facebook users have these issues still they keep on using it and sharing private stuff over the web, without thinking who’s going to see them. It is time to ponder that is it really our own ignorance? Does Facebook contacts really our “friends” ?
