Greetings and Salutations -

If anyone is on Facebook right now, I'm running a series of tests with their privacy settings to figure out which posts can be seen by which people, depending on what settings are made. I'm doing screenshots of everything so I can write this up for you guys.

If you are on, stop by here -


The question is which posts you can see of Bob's - and which you can't. You guys would be friends-of-friends of Bob if you're my friend. If you're not my friend then you'd be complete strangers which would be a good test too. I'm curious what you can and cannot see.

Bob's page is here -


I'm numbering the tests as I go. I'll be posting some photos and links too to see if they behave differently.

So the question is which you see on my page, which you see in that right-hand scrolling feed, and which you see on your master "news feed" (the long list of latest news you see when you click on the Facebook icon in the top left corner).

I'm happy to do other tests while I'm at it - just let me know what you'd like me to try!
