Re: finally
Agreed. If there's one thing Facebook is good at, it's knowing when to call it quits with a feature or product.

Timely Post
Given that FB continually fixes what is *not* broken, and, in the process, divulges publicly what was previously set to private with each update, this is a nice refresher how to control who sees what with regard to email and settings.  We can only hope the next update to FB won't peel back yet another layer of privacy controls in an effort to pump up its bottom line by exploiting the site's users.
