Privacy of posts to Facebook

Any posts a user makes from a pod to Facebook will be made with the privacy level that the users sets on Facebook side when the user authorizes the Diaspora* pod application. Posts done from Diaspora* do not follow the privacy of selected aspects on Diaspora* side. This behaviour is consistent with posting to Twitter etc where the target application governs the privacy of the post.
