Public Updates Could Be Facebook’s Biggest Change
Once Facebook makes status updates more easily public it will create even more incentive to maximize friend numbers and make one’s profile a more broadcast-like medium. If Facebook doesn’t make it easy to adjust privacy settings the possibility for an intimate collection of friends–Facebook’s foundation–will be diminished. Depending on how the company handles these new changes this could be Facebook’s most dramatic change yet.
