1. Audience Selector:
So far users manually select or prepare a list of people with whom they like to share their posts. You are already familiar with ‘Public’ and ‘Friends’ options available in the drop down menu that opens when you share your status. Now onwards Facebook starts explaining what these terms actually stand for. Now a drop down menu will be added comprising the small descriptions such as “Anyone on or off Facebook” and “Your friends on Facebook.”
2. New Style Sharing Settings:
Facebook now shifts the audience selector to the top of the mobile interface that exists right above the status. It was earlier placed right above the keyboard close to the smiley, location and other icons. This new change will also elaborate the sharing setting with a proper title to whom you are sharing your content with. Options will be “Friends” and “Public“.
Privacy checkup pop will be another change to remind those people who haven’t changed their privacy setting from Public for some time.
4. Cover Photos:
So far cover photos were public by default but now a feature will be in place to allow users make their cover photos private.
