Facebook tips: Hide recent activity, shorten status tags

Kristin Burnham, CIO | May 10, 2011
Updates to Facebook let you hide your recent activity from your friends and provide an easier way to tag friends in a status update. CIO's Kristin Burnham has the details.

This will begin deleting the person’s last name—handy if you’re tagging a couple with the same last name.
