When you type peoples name into google it gives your facebook thing away
How do YOU CHANGE IT?
I emailed facebook support and i cant seem to understand what they mean

They said:

Lastly, a public search listing is a basic search result that allows people to know that you have a Facebook account even if they don’t yet use the site. You can opt out of this by unchecking the “Create a public search listing for me and submit it for search engine indexing” box in the “Search” section on the Privacy page, or by selecting a search privacy setting besides “Everyone.”
I still dont get it, can someone tell by step my step?

    on the top right corner it should say setting, scroll ur mouse over it and select the option that says privacy settings. There will be a bunch of links. Click on each one and there will be and option where u can change that.

    You need to:

    1) Click Settings -> privacy settings
    2) Click Search
    3) Then uncheck the last box under public search setting.

    This should turn it off so people cannot google you any more. If you are under 18 no one can search for you anyway – Facebook policy.
