Facebook has been busy! Following last week’s privacy settings update Facebook made another update yesterday and it is now allowing Google to index pages to serve them up in their search engine results.
If you don’t want your page to be indexed simply change your settings by going to: Settings –> Privacy Settings –> Search –> then UN-CLICK the box that says ‘Allow indexing’
Since yesterday Facebook has responded to the “misleading rumors” that Google will index all of your information with the pop up below when you go to your settings:
By “basic information” they mean some of your friends, what you are a fan of including products, places, websites and stores.
Our take is that you WANT Google to index your company page, so “allow” indexing, and if you don’t want your personal page to be indexed then un-click “allow indexing.”
