Facebook's Now Hiding Public Pages From Google's Prying Eyes

Illustration for article titled Facebooks Now Hiding Public Pages From Googles Prying Eyes

Once easily-accessible events listed as "public," in addition to any other public pages, now require users to login before granting them access. It makes sense that the move comes almost directly after the Graph Search announcement, which gives Facebook users in-site access to an almost frightening wealth of information. But with it, Facebook's vision of being an information-hoarding web within the web becomes just a little more imminent. [The Register]
