The status update box has changed also in this new version of Facebook.
1. You will see here a friend tag button, which allows you to specifically tag friends who you are with at the time of writing the status. From here, you can add a status update, and it will add the name of the person or people you are tagging.
Remember: this status update will also display on the Wall of your friends who are tagged.
The status update box now allows you to add your location from your PC, as well as your mobile device.
Remember: be careful with this, as your location data is very personal to you, and others will know where you are.
2. Type in the place where you are, and Facebook will automatically narrow down the place for you.
Facebook status updates, which also include photos and video, can be set 'by default' to send updates to either your friends, a custom list of people, or everyone.
Remember: it is very unwise to use the Public setting, as everyone with a Facebook account not on your friends list, will be able to see the status, photo or video.
3. Your best option is to select Friends if you have no lists set up, or Custom which allows you to post to your network, as well as restricting others from not seeing the update, such as a limited profile list of friends.
