Facebook makes your private messages public?

Oh thanks, guys!

I posted this on Facebook, it deserves a mention here, too!

Your private inbox messages are now visible for all to see, from 2010 and earlier! This is a new change from Facebook as of yesterday. Don't believe me? Read your timeline from those years...yikes! They look like wall posts.....they are not!

There's an easy fix--when you're in your own timeline, just click on the year on the right (2007, 2008, 2009) and you'll see a box with a bunch of friends' messages and a header that says 89 or some number of people have written on so and so's timeline--hover over the right until you see the pencil, click and select hide from timeline. Do that for each year. BOTH parties have to delete or it will show so post and tell your friends!
