Facebook Loosens Privacy Restrictions; Critics Say It is About Money, Not Expression

Facebook has reformed its policies about privacy, teenagers
are now able from the ages of 13 to 17 able to make anything they post on the
site open to the public. The site used to limit teens, but the teens wanted
more exposure. Facebook will be removing the privacy setting and it will allow
users to search for people of all ages. An editor for Slate, Emily Bazelon
believes that Facebook isn’t doing this for the teens, but in fact doing it for
themselves and the publicity. Facebook claims they want all users to be able to
share more, even though as Bazelon had stated it is already happening.
