    In the "Limit The Audience for Old Posts on Your Timeline" page, tap "Limit Old Posts" at the bottom
    .
    This page says, "If you use this tool, content on your timeline you've shared with friends of friends or Public will change to Friends. Remember: people who are tagged and their friends may see these posts as well. You also have the option to individually change the audience of your posts. Just go to the post you want to change and choose a different audience." So, this is going to change our old posts. If we've allowed the public or friends of friends to see our old posts, this is going to change it to friends. As it says, we can also change individual posts as well.
