Check your Facebook Privacy Settings NOW. | Mary Biever | One Writing Mother

Check your Facebook Privacy Settings NOW.

If you haven’t checked your privacy settings on Facebook since their most recent upgrade, STOP. Do not pass go, do not stop for coffee, and DO check your privacy settings.

  1. On your profile page, there is a button on the upper right that says View As. See what your page looks like globally, to any of the 800 million users on Facebook who aren’t your friends.
  2. In the upper right corner, go to the drop down arrow, click on privacy settings, and evaluate each setting.
  3. When you click on edit profile, click on the tool option sprocket on the right of different options and deliberately select what is public and what is locked down.
  4. Check to see what level you are sharing your posts. If you change one post to show as public, then it becomes your new default until you later restrict access.
  5. If/when you check into a location and check others in as well, their friends are able to see where you are. Think carefully before you do so.

I’ll have more details on protecting your Facebook privacy in coming days. Check back soon.

Nothing is worse than thinking your privacy is protected when it really isn’t.
