We’ve all been there, the accidental work rant that you post your friends on Facebook…only you unwittingly sent it out for the whole public to see. [Enter awkward pause and internal freak out here]. Well, today Facebook announced two new steps they are taking to show their loyal fans that they are serious about their privacy and “making it easier to share with who you want.”
First, a little bit of hand holding and love for new Facebook users. Facebook will now default to sharing content only to their friends. Previously it defaulted to “public” which meant that unknowing newbies to Facebook were broadcasting their posts out for all the public to see. New users will now be prompted with the below pop up screen ensuring that they are aware of the audience they are about to broadcast out to.
Second, Facebook is also sharing their privacy check up love with their existing fan base. Existing users may notice the below screen when the login in the next couple of weeks. Its purpose? This nifty little tool will walk you through a quick privacy check up on your account including “things like who you’re posting to, which apps you use, and the privacy of key pieces of information on you’re profile.”
Are these solutions perfect? Probably not, but it’s nice to see them taking steps to make their privacy settings more approachable and easy to use. What are other areas of privacy you think Facebook needs to work on?
It’s nearly Mother’s Day, let’s take a look at the tight-knit community of users who trim the crusts off our sandwiches, Mumblrs.
There are indeed moms on Tumblr. (Sorry kids.) In fact, there’s a whole community of new and expecting mumblrs, momblrs, and pregblrs sharing in the ups and downs of parenthood.
Mumblrs skew younger. 40% of visiting moms are millennials (21-34). Naturally, they also have younger kids. Most of the conversation happening with the mumblr tag is about rearing infants, toddlers, and tykes.
Mumblrs are prolific writers. Text posts are the most common original post type, although photos and quotes are still the most reblogged.
