Protecting Your Information In Facebook

Posts

Whenever you update your status, share photos or post anything on Facebook, you can select who sees what you share by using the “Audience Selector” tool. You can choose to share with everyone, just your friends or even a customized audience. When you create a customized audience, you can selectively share with specific people. Remember, when you post something on another person’s profile, that person controls who can view the post. Additionally, anyone who gets tagged in your posts may see them, along with their friends.


Profile

When you log in to Facebook on a computer, you can see what your profile looks like to other people by using the “View As” tool.

  • To use “View As,” click  on your profile, click “View As…” and follow the on-screen instructions. Using the tool, you can see what your profile looks like to the public or to a specific person.

Tagging

Tag review and Timeline review are options that help you control who sees what you post and what posts appear on your Timeline. Tag review lets you approve or dismiss tags friends add to your posts. Once you approve a tag, the person tagged and their friends may see your post. Remember, when people you’re not friends with tag you in a post, you’re automatically asked to approve or dismiss the tag. Timeline review lets you choose whether posts you’re tagged in appear on your Timeline. When people you’re not friends with tag you in a post, they automatically go to Timeline review. If you’d also like to review tags by friends, you can turn on Timeline review for tags from anyone.
