Facebook privacy settings

Recently, I found a link here to a very important tutorial on how to configure, possibly, some very essential privacy settings on FB.

Little known and so little did I know. It is a very easy to understand blog article with direct links.
"Ten Privacy Settings Every Facebook User Should Know."

The blog All Facebook is an unofficial FB resource.

Remember when using any social media networks that it is the user's responsibility to set the levels of privacy -user beware.

Recently I wondered how FB tried to pick new friends for me ~ I realise one way was directly from anyone who has ever emailed me.
Some of them I may not want me as their friends ;) so i don't even try ...others well what can I say ...
Strangely enough also if you have a few friends in common that have someone else in common ...like my three cousin's father's (my ex uncle) new wife was a friend suggestion. WT ?

Anyway the last few days I finally worked out twitter (d'oh) and I am enjoying the distraction ...though you can't chose your 'friends' ...you can block them but of course I am not talking about any of you ;).

Hey! I didn't know you were on FB! You can find me on there too.

Just thought I'd mention the give away I'm having on my blog.

I don't use FB myself but that's good to know that there are privacy settings available, especially for teens who might inadvertently let slip details.
Love the photos of the boys :)

I don't use FB just because I have no time for anything other than blogging. It does scare me a bit tht now employers are using FB and other sites to check on new employees. I don't know some of all of this stuff scares me somewhat so its good you have found that link and hope that others may use it too.
