Facebook Testing New Privacy Controls

Facebook is testing new privacy controls that will allow the online hangout's roughly 200 million users to decide who should see each of their personal updates.

In a Wednesday announcement, Facebook says the option will
enable users to customize their postings for specific groups of
friends.

For instance, a person may want to share certain things, like
how they're feeling about the weather with everyone while
limiting the audience able to read other developments, like a wild
night of partying.

Some Facebook users have gotten into trouble with employers and
parents who have read updates containing inflammatory remarks or
tales of indiscretions.

The additional privacy controls initially will only be available to some Facebook users.
