Welcome to this morning’s edition of ‘First To Know,’ a series in which we keep you in the know on what’s happening in the digital world. Today, we’re looking at three particularly interesting stories.
Facebook Pushes New Privacy Settings
Facebook has started pushing its new privacy settings, which are showing to users that are logging into their profiles. The most important change is the shortcut to the privacy menu, which now appears in the main toolbar on the top of Facebook.
Furthermore, it is now easier for users to set individual settings and check who can access their photos and various other data inside their profiles.
Google Indoor Imagery Comes to Search Results
Google has started adding links to its indoor Street View imagery next to relevant search results. To see the images, click on the “See Inside” button, which appears next to search results for businesses that have opted to be included in the program.

These include a new action bar UI in the navigation, the possibility to start and reply to threads related to recommendations. Minor new features are the “First to Tip” honor for users who are first to tip businesses and a holiday-themed logo. You can get the new Yelp for Android here.
