It's not privacy settings, they've just done it to some people but not others. I thought it was an Internet rumor, but nope, it's true.

OK, I discovered that I did indeed have PMs posted as timeline posts. They definitely were not wall posts. Nothing bad, but it makes me mad that they allowed this to happen. Thank you to SaraJayne for posting the solution.

This has been all over the news recently (I believe it started with some people in France?) and according to many news sources facebook support has investigated each report it has received of private messages showing up on the timeline and has been able to confirm that the messages which are seen are in fact just old wall posts

Here is just one of the many, many articles on this matter

If you really feel that your private messages are showing up on your wall I suggest that you contact facebook technical support with the messages in question

Facebook is either lying or wrong. I saw those same articles, but there WERE private messages showing on my wall when I looked.

I have to disagree. I just looked over my account and did find private messages in my timeline. Thankfully they were not any that would get me in trouble . They were from the first couple months I had my account. Definately not wall posts.

Yeah, if I didn't keep in touch w/family & long lost friends through FB, I'd close it.

Yes, I have read the articles but have also read posts under the articles where others have confirmed that emails show as wall posts. I will let FB tech support know but not sure if I can re-show what I hid already.

Exactly. One of my "wall posts" actual emails was an exchange between me and a crazy ex. I never friended him, we only had a 3 email exchange so I KNOW it would be impossible for him to have posted on my wall. He was never my friend at any time.
