About half a dozen of this message just appeared on my facebook. I'm really not that facebook savvy. My account are purely family and friends only, so should I be concerned? Do it or don't do it?

Hello, my FB friends: I want to stay PRIVATELY connected with you. I post shots of my family that I don't want strangers to have access to!!! However, with the recent changes in FB, the "public" can now see activities in ANY wall. This happens when our friend hits "like" or "comment" ~ automatically, their friends would see our posts too. Unfortunately, we can not change this setting by ourselves
because Facebook has configured it this way. PLEASE place your mouse over my name above (DO NOT CLICK), a window will appear, now move the mouse on “FRIENDS" (also without clicking), then down to "Settings", click here and a list will appear. REMOVE the CHECK on "COMMENTS & LIKE" and also "PHOTOS". By doing this, my activity among my friends and family will no longer become public. Now, copy and paste this on your wall. Once I see this posted on your page I will do the same. Thanks!

By doing that, you will unsubscribe yourself from that particular friend's updates. When you friends post new photos, leave comments and like something, you will not see the updates on your facebook news feed. You also volunteer to spread false information if you post it on your wall. Facebook privacy settings (public, friends only, friends of friends) are in no way related to this information.
