Privacy settings on Facebook

So, I only recently noticed there had been a few changes to the privacy settings on FaceBook. I can't seem to find where I can modify my limited profile settings? Like what people I message, but aren't my friends, can see on my profile. Hope someone can help me out..

Thanks in advance!

I have yet to figure that out - the new FaceBook privacy settings are obnoxiously difficult to figure out. I *think* if you go to privacy/basic then you can set it that way, but I'm not entirely sure.

I remember you had a similiar problem,vinyl...did you find a solution to it??

Yea at privacy-> basic you can only set what users can see parts of your profile,but not like the good ole "limited profile" settings. Argh.

I ended up making a custom friends group, restricting everything on that, and adding people to it. Which doesn't help if you're messaging someone you haven't added, but I *think* that if your profile has friends-only settings then they won't see that stuff? I'm not sure. If you like, you could send me a message and I can tell you what I can see?

Thanks Vinyl for your offer!!But, I solved (at least part of) our problem: Below the message it says: 

If you send XXXX a message, you will give her permission to view your list of friends, as well as your Basic, Work and Education info for one month.
 
Which basically sucks for me as I enjoyed to write messages to people whose profiles I liked to see, hoping that they didn't check their privacy settings and I therefore was able to view some of their albums. Boo for Facebook!
