People should note, in the latest round of Priavcy Setting "improvements", FB has opted everyone into search, (before you could opt out and not be included in the search index). Now, no matter what, your name, profile pic plus anything you haven't locked down on FB will be available via search.
The effect is that people are "sharing" less and culling their accounts of sensitive material and uploading less photos.
Search Option From Facebook Is a Privacy Test
Independent studies suggest that Facebook users are becoming more careful about how much they reveal online, especially since educators and employers typically scour Facebook profiles.
A Northwestern University survey of 500 young adults in the summer of 2012 found that the majority avoided posting status updates because they were concerned about who would see them. The study also found that many had deleted or blocked contacts from seeing their profiles and nearly two-thirds had untagged themselves from a photo, post or check-in.
