Although users can limit the scope of write access to their walls by configuring Facebook privacy so that only they can write on their walls and no one else however if default configurations is left intact which means friends can write on their Walls the posts can be viewed by the friends of friends of the account holder. Under normal circumstances this configuration is quite harmless and needs not be modified. However if users want they can increase their privacies to secure their information by specifying the visibility scope of the posts written by their friends.
