Facebook just made your intro a lot more personal.
As the mysterious Tyler Durden said in Fight Club: “You are not your job, you’re not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet.” But, according to Facebook, now, you are your job. The social media giant changed how its users employment and education history are displayed and they’re the first thing anyone sees about you.
“This is a change we made in the past week to make it easier to understand which of your work and education (school, college) fields are public,” the spokeswoman told The Huffington Post. “None of these fields have [had] their privacy settings changed; we’re now simply showing the already-public fields in Intro. If you’ve already curated what you want to appear there, this change shouldn’t affect you,” the spokeswoman added.
