By Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Facebook Inc has changed a privacy setting on its social network, limiting the audience that sees new users first posts in a reversal of a feature that had critics said forced people to over-share personal information. The company said on Thursday that the status updates that new users post will now be viewable only to friends by default, instead of being viewable to the general public as it had previously been. Facebook users will continue to be able to customize their settings so that status updates can be seen by as big or small an audience as they want. The change to the default setting, which Facebook quietly implemented a few weeks ago, is the result of feedback from users, Mike Nowak, a Facebook product manager, said in an interview with Reuters.
