Re : Facebook Debuts Privacy Checkup
What's the point of making the share option as a friend as a default and still say facebook is a social network? The whole point of facebook being created was for people around the world to socialize and make friends. Not carry all of your friends with you to facebook.There are apps for that like whatsapp not facebook.If you wish to share your posts with friends you can always  it among your friends.

Facebook: What's wrong with 'everyone?'
Facebook showed its prejudices when it made "everyone" the default setting the first time around. It's gotten the "people first" old time religion rather late, after the first 1.28 billion people have already signed up using the "everyone" standard. The more everyone can see your information, the more everyone will come to Facebook. Let's see how complicated Facebook makes it for the 1.28 billion to apply greater privacy.

Re: Dinosaurs
Apparently, people have taken to calling the dinosaur "Zuckasaurus," or so says Nick Bilton. Facebook may regret not getting out in front of this by proposing its own name for its mascot. The company could have gone with something like "Peep, the privacy-aware dinosaur."

Dinosaurs
Are dinosaurs known for their privacy skills? I guess their full story stayed private but I'm not sure that is a privacy win. Seriously though, it is good Facebook is changing some defaults to "friends" only.
