You can keep it completely private and share only with yourself, or friends, groups, public or with certain sets of viewers. You can exclude certain friends from viewing your posts also. Hence from now on, it will prompt users what their current post setting is and will ask if they like to change it.

2. Facebook will check the interlinked app where you logged in using your Facebook login credentials. It will show the privacy settings for each individual app and you can alter them anytime.
3. It will ask you to check or change privacy level for settings like age, relationship status, phone number, work, current location etc.
