Facebook Puts Users' Details On Search Engines

If you're a "Facebooker," you may want to listen-up.

The social networking site could soon be making your information available to everyone.

Facebook announces a new feature that will make basic profiles of members accessible through search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN.

The moves hopes to drive more users to the privately owned website in an effort to boost ad revenues.

Facebook says its aim in making user information available through search engines is to help more people connect.

The network is a potential goldmine to advertisers because of the data it holds on its users, like birthdates, interests and musical tastes.

There is a way to keep your information from being searched.
