Fix your facebook post settings.

With the new privacy settings updates that are rolling out this week there are a couple glitches. Currently people's posts are being set to 'only me'. You need to manually change this before anyone will be able to see your status updates or game posts. I'm confident facebook will fix this soon, but until then here's how to do it.

READ MORE HERE about facebook's updated privacy settings. 

 For each post make sure you select friends only. 

Fix your facebook post settings.

In the future, this is how you would usually set your privacy lock and save your choice as the default setting: 

Step 1 Click on the 'whats on your mind?' status bar on your profile or news feed.

The tool bar pops up. When you hover your mouse over the lock, notice that it is set to 'Only me'.

Fix your facebook post settings.

Step 2 Click on the lock and select 'Custom' and click 'Edit'.

Fix your facebook post settings.

Step 3 Select 'friends only' from the drop down menu.

**You can also select 'Specific People...' and set it to a list you've set up. But remember this will change your settings for all future statuses, links, and application posts! 

I recommend just choosing 'friends only'.
You can manually change it to a specific list whenever you want something to be seen by only farmville players, friends, coworkers, family, etc.

Fix your facebook post settings.

Step 4 Select 'Make this my default setting' and click the 'Save Settings' button.

Fix your facebook post settings.

Step 5 You're done!! Share this post with your friends so you can see their posts!

Make sure you hover your mouse over the lock each time before you share anything to ensure it is set so your friends can see it! This fix works, but it's going back and forth between 'only me' and 'friends only' on my posts. 

Tips

  • If you've already published some things you can salvage them by going to your profile page, right clicking on the link or picture, and copying the link address/location. Then paste it into your status bar, check your settings and share!
