Facebook is getting rid of a privacy feature that let users limit who can find them on the social network.
Facebook Inc. said Thursday that it is removing a setting that controls whether users could be found when people type their name into the website's search bar.
What about people who are hiding from stalkers? I guess they're just plain out of luck. Facebook says that only "a single-digit percentage of the nearly 1.2 billion" Facebook users employ the feature that hides them from social search. Even if that single digit is one percent, which is highly doubtful, that's still twelve million people who want or need to be hidden. Seems like a significant audience to me.
