Protecting your privacy on Facebook
In the past, we’ve discussed online and tech safety. With all of the hackers and viruses that are out there today, it is important to protect your online footprint.
Mashable posted on this very topic last week. In the post, the author specifically talks about Facebook’s privacy settings. Because this social network is constantly changing and updating, their privacy policies are constantly changing and updating. There is an ongoing discussion the professional sector just how much to share with the public. There is also a push in the education sector for professors and other academics to lock down their profiles so that students aren’t able to access the personal content posted by their superiors.
Here are the main privacy areas to pay attention to:
Friends and Followers
Timeline and Tagging
Take some time to read the Mashable post that features step-by-step directions on how to personalize each of these important profile areas.
Remember that Facebook is only what you make it. You can choose to share as much or as little as you want with as many or as few people as you are comfortable with.
