I got my shiny new yellow Nokia Lumia 920 that has really made mobility a pleasure again. I waited for a new device that I could comfortably replace my BlackBerry Bold (brand that I have been using the past 7-8 years) and Lumia 920 became it. I was mostly concerned about the missing keyboard and some of my friends said that I am a dinosaurs as keyboard is really a thing of last century… that is what they said… and they were right… there is really no need for a physical keyboard at least with Lumia 920.
Since the last two weeks, I have been taking beautiful pictures from Texas Christmas, some of them during the night with amazing results. Lumia 920 camera is really the first mobile camera where I do not have to carry my pocket digital camera. Following picture was taking with my Lumia when Skip (Lowchen, little lion dog) was wondering what this white stuff is all about…
Today, I really started to wonder that nobody made any comments on some of the pictures… (maybe this is Facebook addiction…) and then I realized something… All of the entries that I had made are defaulting to “Me Only”… so I have been taking pictures for myself, myself only… sweet…
I could not find any settings on my Lumia that would change it.. neither just by reading and browsing Facebook settings…. but as with everything in life.. somebody else must have had the same issue and I found this in a blog entry where somebody has found out what the issue was:
As the text above says, if you are a former BlackBerry user and have used the Facebook App for BlackBerry, you might have issues…. When I found my settings, this is how it looked like:
With the change, I want my friends to see what I am posting, so it looks like this now:
I still can’t believe that I missed this when I started using my new Nokia 920, but this is of course not the issue with my new phone, but with some legacy stuff and how Facebook has its privacy settings done. This also gave me an opportunity to really learn more how things are shared in Facebook so the same things does not happen to me what happened to Zuckerberg’s sister this week.
