Facebook is changing. I’ve been pretty resistant to be active in Facebook (oh no, another network to maintain?), but after all the pokes and invites, I recently gave in and started using Facebook more regularly.
There are social networks consisting mainly of people that you know (LinkedIn, Facebook, Friendster) and social networks built upon people that you primarily don’t know (social news type sites such as StumbleUpon and Digg). Both sides are the key to your success in professional networking, and yes – even promoting your blog.
The big news today is that Facebook is dramatically changing its privacy settings.
If the reason that you use Facebook regularly is its privacy, change your public profile settings right away. So, if you don’t want to be listed in the search engines at all, just uncheck the second box in the My Public Search Listing section
