An Unanswered Letter to Facebook

Dear Facebook,

I am not a very smart man, so I am easily confused, and you are confusing me! There are too many privacy options. It should really come down to like three options:

1. Stuff Anyone Can Know
2. Stuff I Share with Most People
3. Stuff My Only Best Friends Can Know

That’s it. That’s all you need. I’ve made it easy for you.

I hardly use your service because you change these options too often, and they are way too complex! If I make a status update, about how I get lightheaded every time I get an erection, I don’t need my boss at work to know this, but I could really care less who knows what I thought of “Iron Man 2.” (It was OK, but not as good as the first one.)

Every since you changed your privacy settings I only use facebook to poke my girlfriend, and just between you and me, I don’t need you to do this!

Maybe if I had paid more attention in Algerabra or taken Trigonometry I could better understand your privacy policy, but as it is now it’s way too confusing.

If you could send me an easy way to set up my account like I listed above that would be great!
