As facebook gets slower, the time we spend “hunting” for certain settings gets exponentially longer. Maybe facebook needs a pref/settings control panel like Firefox or Chrome. Cause this pulldown, open page, hunt for setting, pulldown different page, hunt for setting… I can tell you I’m on a pretty fast connection and it just about makes me want to give up facebook.
So you might want to familiarize yourself with these pages:
1. Account Settings – general stuff, like your account name, contact info and stuff.
2. Privacy Settings – I have recently changed from friends only. While I am an open book if you look for me, the stuff I do on facebook is a bit more personal. I don’t want to know who you are. But there are a few folks, who… let’s just say, “it’s complicated.” And I’d suggest you turn off a lot of the stuff in this area. facebook, in an attempt at being innovative has gone overboard with sharing and re-sharing features. It’s almost too much to keep up with.
3. Application Settings – where you can limit external applications from posting stuff on your wall. A couple of them started rewriting my status message rather than just updating my wall. And that sucked. (see: blip.fm’s facebook integration)
