Technology Tip 18: Manage Your Facebook

If you aren't on Facebook I bet you have heard about it in the news. This website has more than 800 million active users. When you post something interesting it can spread like wild fire around the world. There are countless stories of people losing their jobs, marriages, and more about the carelessness of their posting and who sees it. There is also concerns from parent's about children posting information on the internet and who has access to it.

The truth is, Facebook is as private as you would like it to be. You can choose who can view your information, what information you see, and even if someone can find your name when they search the website. One of the best resources I have found that guides you through Facebook is the CIO Facebook Bible. If you want to start out with ten simple steps try their 10 Essential Tips & Tricks for all Facebook Users.

I just learned to clean up all those game requests I keep getting and have no interest in!
