Facebook ditches 1 of its privacy settings

NEW YORK — Facebook is getting rid of a privacy feature that let users limit who can find them on the social network.

Facebook Inc. said Thursday it is removing a setting that controls whether users could be found when people type their name into the site’s search bar. Facebook says only a single-digit percentage of the nearly 1.2 billion people on its network were using the setting.
