Stay Safe on Facebook – Part II

Show “limited friends” a cut-down version of your profile

You can choose to make people ‘limited friends’ who only have access to a cut-down version of your profile if you wish. This can be useful if you have associates who you do not wish to give full friend status to, or feel uncomfortable sharing personal information with.

Disable options, then open them one by one

Think about how you want to use Facebook. If it’s only to keep in touch with people and be able to contact them then maybe it’s better to turn off the bells and whistles. It makes a lot of sense to disable an option until you have decided you do want and need it, rather than start with everything accessible.

They help, too

Facebook is now putting in more security measures to keep you safe from unwanted ‘friends’. Make sure you’re aware of all the options so you stay as safe as possible.
