FACEBOOK : How to stay private now that anyone can find you on Facebook

Facebook is tweaking your privacy settings again, but it’s not quite as serious as it sounds—the change, which removes an option to hide your name in search results, was announced last December and has already been in effect for 90 percent of users. On Thursday, Facebook removed the option for the last users still hanging on.
This change only affects the less than 10 percent of you still using “Who can look up my timeline by name?” In December, Facebook said it would be retiring the setting “in coming weeks,” but that really meant more than 10 months, apparently. If this change is a shock to your system, listen up: There are other privacy settings you can use to control who has access to your profile.
If you're still using the search option, you'll see this notice in the coming weeks.
Check those privacy settings
Now that Facebook’s Graph Search tool is available to most American users, the way people find you has changed. Instead of looking for you by name, people can find you by searching for “friends of my friends who live in New York” or navigate to your profileanother friend’s page. You can control the audience of your updates, photos, or bio information if you don’t want strangers seeing your information.
