The new Facebook Timeline is arguably the most drastic layout overhaul in the history of Facebook, causing lots of confusion and disorientation for several users.

It will take some time to get used to the new layout and new features, and customizing your own privacy settings with the new layout can seem intimidating.

With Timeline, every single wall post, photo, and friend that you have made since the day you joined Facebook is searchable, and that can be a nightmare for those long-time users who don’t want everything to be viewable by strangers or specific friends.

The next few pages will walk you through the most important privacy settings on Facebook Timeline.

Follow these steps and you’ll be well on your way to sharing the right content with the right people.
