Photo Privacy Settings for Facebook Groups

There have been some photo postings in Skeldon Conversation that are not visible to ALL members. The whole idea of a group is to share information with everyone in that group. Restricted photos should be kept on your timeline.

We respect your privacy in Skeldon Conversation. If your photos are set to “Friends Only” then you do not need to post them in a group for your friends to see. However, when your photos are set to “Friends Only” and it is shared in a group, those who are not your friend will see a blank post. Hence, the questions, Nothing? What is here? and a slue of other comments. Sharing photos in a group require that privacy setting be “Public”. While photos on your timeline can remain amongst your friends.
This post will seek to assist in changing your photo privacy settings. There are two scenarios: First, your photos may be in an “Album” as in Your Family Vacation and second, your photos maybe “Single” as in a Mobile Album. I will address both cases.
