Fresh on the heels of our article on setting up privacy in Skype we were going to write an article on Facebook privacy which is even more of an issue – Facebook do not help by constantly changing settings and adding new features with insecure default options…
Facebook can also be used to rapidly spread viruses, as we reported earlier this month in ‘could new Facebook virus be unstoppable?‘
Rather than reinvent the wheel we would like to recommend the free ‘Facebook Privacy Guide’ eBook – written by Mike Halsey, a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional). The eBook is in standard PDF format, 35 pages long and includes images of Facebook privacy settings pages:
“A lively accessible book for all Facebook users of all ages from kids to adults to help them make sure that people can keep their private information private, and to help raise awareness of the implications of making status updates and personal photographs public online.
The book also informs about Facebook spam and malware apps, and is an essential guide to how to keep yourself safe.”
It’s free to download and easy to follow – download it from here.
