Facebook users who don’t adjust their privacy settings will begin publishing their status updates and photos to the entire internet Wednesday, a change made by Facebook in its simplification of its privacy tools in order to keep up with the popularity of micro-publishing sites like Twitter. Facebook users logging in Wednesday will see a ‘transition tool’ that will show them how their old privacy settings map onto the new ones, and show them ’suggested’ new settings in a less complicated interface. For example, Facebook suggests that e-mail addresses are only shown to friends, while status updates are recommended to be made entirely public. Under the new settings, a user’s name, profile photo, gender and friend list are publicly available, as well.
First came the new real-time homepage, which mimics Twitter’s "river of updates" model, and now Facebook is adding ways to make your entire profile public — allowing anyone on the site to see it without the need for a confirmed "friend" relationship.

Facebook's updated privacy settings and impending Google access could rip open a security hole allowing hackers to more easily steal personal information and break into critical accounts in identity theft schemes, experts say.
