Setting Up Privacy Settings

February 24, 2014, 7:00 AM by Stephanie Gregory

Setting Up Privacy Settings

More than 500 million people use Facebook and for a lot of those profiles, personal information comes with it. That is why choosing your privacy settings to keep your personal information from leaking is key.

"If you don't want people to see certain things, make sure you're very careful about how you apply privacy settings," Click Rain Vice President of Client Strategy Rohn Gibson said.

Gibson says also make sure people don't have access to devices you’re logged into.

"First step is to set up a password on your computer," Gibson said.

That way is it harder for someone to get on your laptop or smart phone and find all your personal or login information.

"Secondly, look at each of the social networks. Each social network will have its own privacy settings," Gibson said.

Gibson says to decide how to use your networks, like using Facebook to keep connected with close friends and family and LinkedIn to connect with employers and networking. Gibson says when you decide how to use each medium, set your privacy setting accordingly.

"They just need to be really aware of what they feel comfortable with and apply privacy settings accordingly," Gibson said.

But, Gibson says no matter what device or social network it is, always look at the privacy settings offered.

"Make sure that you aren't going in blindly and leaving the default settings. But you look at each one of those and figure out how you want to use that tool," Gibson said.
