Limit the audience of past posts on Facebook

With Facebook's new Timeline rolling out to everyone slowly. Adjusting the default privacy settings of all your past posts, images, photos, videos and other updates can be done with a single click. This is necessary as it is sometimes not psychically possible to go around and change each post individually. With this option you can limit the audience of all your past posts on your Timeline to only friends. Which means friends of friends and the public will not be able to see your posts. With this option you can control the privacy of all your past posts on your Timeline.

Note: If you use this tool then all your past posts will be limited to Friends only. If at a later time you want to change it back to friends of friends or public. You will need to go to each post and change it one at a time. There is no single click to revert to past settings.
