3. How can I change my photo privacy?
After any major Facebook change or update, I always get questions related to photo privacy even if the change or update was unrelated. And every time, it seems, the answers to photo privacy questions are more and more elusive.
If Timeline has sparked your interest in who can see which photos--whether it's your albums or photos you're tagged in--here's what you need to know once you've made the switch.
-How to change the privacy of photos you're tagged in: Start by clicking the drop-down menu from the arrow at the top right of your screen and select "Privacy Settings." Next, choose "Edit Settings" next to "Timeline and Tagging." Click the drop-down menu next to "Who can see posts that appear on your Timeline because you've been tagged." Then, make the change to your privacy setting, or click "Custom" to make the photos visible to only you or certain lists. Finish by clicking "Save changes."
This setting is one that Facebook condensed when it redesigned its privacy page. As a result, you can no longer change the individual settings of photo tags and posts (or locations) in which people tag you. Instead, this blanket setting encompasses all three. If you change this setting to make photos you're tagged in private (i.e., only you can see them) the same setting will apply to wall posts and location tags.

-How to change the privacy of photo albums: First, click on the "Photos" icon from your Timeline. Then, next to each album, click the icon in the lower-right to change the album's privacy to whatever you prefer. You'll have to do this individually for each album.
4. Can I use Facebook's new apps privately?
You've probably seen posts in your News Feed or Ticker saying a friend has read a story on The Washington Post or pinned something to a board on Pinterest. Facebook boasts that there are nearly 3,000 of these apps, which let you share a variety of actions with your friends, beyond "liking" something, such as what you're reading or what you're watching.
