    Hi all,

    For a while now I've been increasingly agitated by the fact that every single time I upload a post or image to my Facebook account, it's marked as private on Facebook- which I only notice when I don't get replies or tell someone to look at something that doesn't appear to exist.

    I have set every possible Microsoft / Windows Phone app/plugin to use Friends of Friends (my preferred privacy option) but Facebook is completely ignoring my choices.

    I get that some people don't want their stuff to be public, but some people (like me) do actually want their friends to see the stuff they send them.... has anyone else had this?

    Interestingly, just had a look at the 'apps' on my Facebook account and it seems to think I haven't logged in through the Microsoft or Windows Phone apps in ages - am I missing something?

    Thanks
    Andrew

    The setting can only be changed on Facebook. Change those privacy settings and you're fine.

    Thank you both so much! That setting is ridiculously tucked away, I had spent ages searching but people only mentioned Apps, I couldn't find that particular answer anywhere :)
