You might have seen a privacy alert message recently when logging into Facebook, as new privacy controls were released this past Thursday.
Once you click 'Continue' you're presented with a slightly confusing screen to configure new privacy settings. Your old defaults are unselected by default.
Upon seeing the new screen, I found myself just accepting the new settings and then refining the privacy controls using the 'Settings' link. Several settings were set to 'Friends of a Friend' and 'Everyone' where I didn't want this type of access. I found the most important settings under the 'Profile' and 'Search' link.
