40 thoughts on “10 Privacy Settings Every Facebook User Should Know

  1. E,

    Excellent post and advice – although I do have a Facebook account (shame-shame) – I’m certainly no regular. But have noticed the odd spam starting to creep in for Viagara and “stik” marasin. Why spammers seem to be obsessed with trying to sell these two “hot” items is beyond me.

    The internet is so much more interesting and empowering than a source (or target) for these types of “Tok Save”.

    Note that if there were 96 hours in the day – I would probably dedicate half hour a day to the task of visiting Facebook.

    I’m a firm believer than socialising needs to be done face to face rather than somewhere in cyberworld with someone that might or might not be what they claim to be or look like.

    We just had a power outage in Goroka… so need to go and light a couple of candles.

    It’s good you put this up – BUT the real irony here is that facebook itself is attempting to breach basic privacy laws by basically amending its terms and conditions of usgae so that EVERY single bit of your corro in fb or your photos – basically ALL the content of your personal page, can be used by fb in any way they see fit. This is akin to them claiming copyright over each and every member’s fb page.

    See here: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/19/technology/internet/19facebook.html?_r=1

    This is EXACTLY the reason I’ve been so reluctant to join – and give this site the power of ALL corro & messages I put up on the site. For Get It.

    I am probably going to withdraw from fbook by the end of the week. Just mulling it over now.


  3. Basically what the above means is that “anything you upload to Facebook can be used by Facebook in any way they deem fit, forever, no matter what you do later”.

    I am going to join the “Facebook Bill of Rights and Responsibilities” group and see what pans out.

    Over & out

  4. NP, Someone, pass it around I believe it is an important issue.

    Thanks Rob, true true, technology is meant to enhance life not become our lives…

    …but going along the great articles KK has provided it is an important issue to think about. It somehow reminds me of the current financial crises where everyone believed in the magic of the ‘Free Markets’ and that, that itself would provide a self regulating mechanism. We haven’t learn’t anything from the 30’s this crash is even bigger than that.

    So in today’s world we started off with the internet’s love of free information and everyone rallied around the war cry of Google to ‘Do No Evil’ yet Power still appears to Corrupt and I hope Absolute Power does not Corrupt Absolutely??

  5. hello All, I think that some peoples should go look in (Dummies for Face book)

  6. This is precisely why I am not on Facebook.

    The thing I find extremely amusing about social net-working sites is that they are essentially a human database.

    What makes social net-working sites so sublime is that all the information loaded up into the system is VOLUNTARY!!!!!

    Intelligence agencies world-over must be gloating….
