Mark Zuckerberg: Allow Facebook users to hide their name and personal information from searches

I was disappointed to find out that this feature was removed from Facebook. I believe Facebook users should be given the option on whether or not they want people to be able to find them on Facebook. I also recently learned about the graph search option, in which total strangers would not only be able to find you, but also find out details about you online. All Facebook users should be able to opt out of this if they want. Allowing users to hide their name on searches and details about their personal lives protects user privacy and safety online.

      Mark Zuckerburg just paid $30 million to purchase four homes in his neighborhood so he could increase his privacy. Yet he thinks it’s perfectly OK to decrease our privacy by removing a privacy option. His motto must be, “Do as I SAY, not as I DO!”

      All information should be private unless the person allowed you to see his info.

      ANYONE who wants to keep themselves out of the search should be able to. Who cares if only a small percentage use it? **Those who use it have a reason for using it!** We should be able to make anything private that we want private! For too long has Facebook made visibility automatic and default.

      Regarding the point that we can be found via a friend's Friends list, that's a different story than a client or potential employer searching for you in the search. At least with a mutual friend, there is some sort of connection. If I know the person's name, I can block them individually if I want to be hidden from them. How can one know which persons might be searching for him or her, or the risks associated therewith?
