BROOKLYN - Facebook is changing its privacy settings for teens.

The social network will now allow teens to post photos and updates to the general public. That means strangers and companies collecting data for advertisers and marketing companies will be able to see selected posts.

Strangers will also be able to 'follow' teens they don't know and see their public posts in their main news feeds.

Brooklyn residents told News 12 that teens should have extra security protection and monitoring.
