Going forward, when new people join Facebook, the default audience of their first post will be set to Friends, instead of the previous setting of public.
For spreading the message, Facebook is using a blue cartoon dinosaur, who politely says, “Sorry to interrupt. You haven’t changed who can see your posts lately.”

The changes are part of the latest effort by Facebook to address concerns about privacy, following criticism over its data mining practices for marketing purposes.
“While some people want to post to everyone, others have told us that they are more comfortable sharing with a smaller group, like just their friends. We recognise that it is much worse for someone to accidentally share with everyone when they actually meant to share just with friends, compared with the reverse,” Facebook said in a statement.
It would allows users to change the audience for a post at any time, including past posts.
“Over the next few weeks, we’ll start rolling out a new and expanded privacy checkup tool, which will take people through a few steps to review things like who they are posting to, which apps they use, and the privacy of key pieces of information on their profile,” it said.
Besides, choosing the audience for posts, Facebook also offers ‘Anonymous Login’ to help users access apps without sharing any personal information from Facebook
