Law360, New York (December 16, 2009, 1:29 PM EST) -- On Dec. 9, 2009, Facebook changed the privacy settings that apply to its over 350 million users. The most controversial of these changes is that certain information about each Facebook user is now always publicly available to all other Facebook users, and Facebook users have no way to alter this privacy setting.
The information now available is each Facebook user’s name, profile picture, current city, gender, networks, list of friends and list of “Pages” that the user is a “fan” of.
