It’s easy to change Facebook’s default landing page so you can control what people see first. Here’s how.

First, log in to the Facebook account you want to modify. You’ll need admin rights to make changes, as always.

On the page, click Edit Page at top right.

Now Facebook will display a new page with a control bar at left.  Click Manage Permissions. More options will appear in the right-pane.  Under the Default Landing Tab, click the dropdown menuselect the section of your Page where you want visitors to land first.

In my example, below, I selected the Wall.

If you’re tired of Facebook and its privacy issues, you can always permanently delete your account.
