Fix your Facebook privacy settings

Settings–>Account–>Disable


#3

This is odd for me to do so, but I feel like I have to say Facebook has actually been really good about keeping my settings the way they are.

But I do like where @omems is going there…

I feel like I’ve got to check them at least once a month because either Facebook changes them, or my mother finds a new way to get around being blocked.


#5

Facebook is bad enough, but the really horrible one is Google Photos…

Does anyone actually understand when something is publicly visible in that mess?


#6

Sorry. Not good enough. It needs to be permanently deleted, not merely disabled.


#7

Here’s my setting: Facebook–>never sign up. I don’t like that shade of blue. I don’t want to belong to any club…you know the rest.


#8

Or when an “update” to my phone will suddenly enable all the photos on my phone to “auto back up” to Google Photos…

That was a fun week. Everyone I know went through a months worth of data overnight with that “update”.

[/quote]I set it up a few months back and it hasn’t changed. I was impressed, as they typically “fix” things for the users.

[/quote]I do, but only because I made nothing publicaly visible. Talk about a trainwreck of occasional permissions. Sometimes. Instead, nobody never sees nothing.

Forcing The Cloud down unwilling people’s throats should be a jailable offense.


#12

If you don’t want it visible to the whole world… don’t put it on the internet. Keep in mind anything you say/do can be shared to anyone.


#13

And if you don’t want your neighbour to know your business say nothing to anyone ever!
Sound advice!


#14

Abstinence-only social interaction.
