Tips: Use Facebook Lists to Control Your Social Stream

Do you want to keep all your socialness in one place like Facebook, but hesitate every time you go to post about the late night drinking in a place not just your friends, but your family, may see as well?   Facebook has controls for that!

Do keep in mind that Facebook is ever evolving and there have been times when permissions and settings have been lost or reset resulting in things that were previously hidden suddenly becoming visible, so be smart and either set up two Facebook accounts (one naughty, one relatively nice) or just don’t post things to the “relatively nice”  profile that could get you in serious trouble if the privacy controls fail.

News: Skype video chat may be coming to Facebook

Skype, everyone’s favorite VOIP and video chat IM app may be making moves to embed it’s services into Facebook, potentially allowing Facebook users to voice and video chat with each other from within a Facebook page.  This means that Facebook could become a player in the sexy video chat arena as people go from casually chatting and messaging to getting a little real face to face for some sexy time!

Nothing is certain yet, but it appears that they’re doing preliminary testing for embedded video chat.
