The ‘Privacy Dinosaur’ urges Facebook users to check their privacy settings
The ‘Privacy Dinosaur’ urges Facebook users to check their privacy settings: Facebook has introduced a blue cartoon Zuckersaurus-Rex, or some other type of dinosaur, to warn users when they are about to post something publicly.
Facebook has always had an interesting relationship with its users and their privacy.
Now, users who haven’t adjusted their privacy settings will see the dino-message whenever they attempt to share a status update, link or photo that would otherwise be visible to everyone.
Accidentally sharing a public post on Facebook is all too easy. If a user changes the audience of a post on a one-time basis, i.e. to share an update publicly, for example, then all future posts will be made public until the privacy settings are changed again.
