Facebook is getting rid of a privacy feature that let users limit who can find them on the social network.
Facebook Inc said on Thursday (local time) that it was removing a setting that controlled whether users could be found when people type their name into the website's search bar.
Facebook said only a single-digit percentage of the nearly 1.2 billion people on its network were using the setting.
The change comes as Facebook is building out its search feature, which people often use to find people they know - or want to know - on the site.
Facebook, which is based in Menlo Park, California, says users can protect their privacy by limiting the audience for each thing they post about themselves.
