i hate the new privacy settings. it used to be that my wall was my status updates and whatever else i put on it and also anything someone else posted to it. i had much control over my public wall. if i went off and commented on an old college buddy's wall (e.g., something political or something silly) then none of my friends who weren't friends with my buddy would see it. while it was not private, per se, it was private enough that i was comfortable with the system. i had my public life that was largely mundane (read: bubble pop) and i'd head off to a buddies' page for fun. now, every comment i make is showing up on my wall and i can no longer turn it off. i can delete individual comment notifications from my wall, but sometimes they don't appear for 20 minutes or so and by then i am away. it's a crummy "new" privacy system.
