Facebook has made it possible for its members to assign, on the fly, a wider
variety of access levels to content they post using third-party applications and
Web sites, the company said Wednesday.
Previously, members chose a default privacy setting for content shared via
applications, and that setting was then applied across the board to this type of
post going forward.
While this default setting remains, members now have the option to apply a
different access setting to each thing they post through an application or Web
site, on a case-by-case basis, according to Facebook.
