Social Media: Privacy, Functionality, Value

Today I took the first steps to start limiting access to Facebook and twitter posts.  I found both to offer to add controls, but the result is less than satisfying.  On Facebook, there is no search of friends to be able to try and change en mass (i.e. If i want to categorize a list of people I went to high school as one group, I have to do it individually.

Twitter is even worse.  I elected to make all posts locked or private.  I decided not to cancel or terminate the account.  This does not stop posts from being seen by the people that are currently following me.  My posts today are:
