I have two Facebook accounts. One is set to PUBLIC as my professional “open Facebook”. It is linked on my blog sidebar. I have another Facebook account for my personal connections with close friends and family.
At a time of great darkness, great light is always needed!
#1. SEE WHAT OTHERS SEE – CHECK YOUR PRIVACY
***When you are in “Public” mode everything you are seeing is what anyone in the world is seeing.***
#2. Cover Photos & Profile Photos Are Public
**NEVER make a private photo – such as a family group photo – baby photos, wedding photos, etc…your COVER photo unless you are OK with the entire world seeing it, copying it, sharing it and even using it for advertising.**
#3. Tagged Posts & Photos Are Not Private – “Review”!
In your privacy settings choose that anything tagged is showing to “only me” first – this is a REVIEW FIRST option before you allow it to post on your page.
#4. Turn Off Facial Recognition
#5. YOUR PAST WILL HAUNT YOU
#6. Public Site Comments and Photos Stay Public
#7. Know Who Your Friends Are
#8. Be Diligent
- check PUBLIC mode (see #1) and decide if everything you see is something you wouldn’t mind a hacker in Russia or a cyber stalker to see.
- check your PRIVACY settings (see #3, #4) once per week. Be familiar with the info, and expect changes.
