Facebook schedules your privacy checkup

The social network hopes to win back trust with reminders about privacy settings. Meanwhile, Apple's iMessage bug continues to be a bother, and Samsung says goodbye to the Music Hub.


In this episode of CNET Update:

  • Learn why Facebook wants to give you a privacy health checkup. Brand new members also get the benefit of not having "public" as the default for sharing. But keep in mind that Facebook wants you to keep sharing. The more you post, the more money it can make from advertisers. So if you trust Facebook more, it hopes you'll share more.
  • Get a quick breakdown on how Apple's iMessage bug is keeping some text messages from getting through to new Android converts. In the meantime, you can make sure your texts don't get lost in iMessage limbo by turning off the service.
  • Say goodbye to Samsung's Music Hub. Users of the streaming service should download their music purchaces and use up all credit before it shuts down on July 1.
