If you haven’t checked your Facebook privacy settings lately, it’s time to revisit them. I’m amazed at how many people think they’ve taken adequate precautions, yet I can waltz right onto their wall or view all their personal photos, even though I’m not a friend or even a friend of their friends.
Fortunately, Facebook now places privacy and location controls next to everything you share. You can choose who sees your status updates, photos and location before you even post them.
You’ll still want to check your default settings. You should also edit your profile to make sure you’re not sharing unwanted information. If you’re the parent of teenagers and you allow them on Facebook, it’s important that you help them lock down their settings, as well.

As a constant facebook user, I was drawn to this article, so I wanted to share it with all of you. We’ve quoted Kim before and actually have a link to her tutorial on mistakes not to make when you set up your first social networking page. See it here on our site: http://inobtr.org/tutorials/10-myspace-page-profile-mistakes/ . Great teaching moments to take with your kids and work out your privacy settings together. We all need to pay attention to this! from INOBTR
