Social media site, Facebook has announced that they have removed the final portion of an old privacy feature that allowed users to be hidden from the site’s search feature. The feature, when enabled, allowed users to prevent their page from being located even if someone entered their name directly into the search parameters. Facebook says the changes were made because the usage of the site has changed. They say Facebook used to be more like a directory and removing your name from the search made it difficult for strangers to access a given profile. Now, the focus has shifted more to controlling content on user pages. They say users had reported that they could not find someone they knew personally, even when they were in a Facebook group together. Directors at the site say the changes make it harder to hide, but stress the importance of checking other privacy features so that material on your Timeline is only visible to friends. —Jim L.

Facebook no longer lets users hide from search, by Lauren Hockenson, http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2013/10/10/facebook-search-privacy/2962643, Accessed October 10, 2013.
Psalm 139:7-10 (NASB) Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? (8) If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. (9) If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, (10) Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
