Itinerary for Facebook Users regarding their Privacy and Safetyby Jeniffer Leio Excutive
Everyone is moving towards social media platforms. Thus it is a need of the hour to provide them safety and security. For this, these digital platforms are mandated to have such provisions concerning Privacy clause. In this article, we are delivering some tips through which you can have a safe journey ahead in the most popular social media- Facebook (FB):
- FB clearly forbids a person younger than 13 from registering here on FB. If they scrounge and find any wrong age, then FB may terminate your account. So, don’t register an account on FB until you attain the age of 13. CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) helps to track the offenders’ account on FB.
- FB warns you to not to share your password with anyone, and think before you post on FB, and accept the friend request from only those people who you know personally.
- FB allows us to post on FB publicly, but it may hamper privacy. For this, you can monitor your by-default sharing setting. When the setting is Public, then all your posts including your personal photos with intimates can be seen by anyone on the FB. So, you can restrict this spread by setting it to Friends from Public.
- If you have joined any FB group or created lists of FB friends, then you can also control the posts by hiding your posts posted on those groups and lists of friends over there as well.
- FB disallows fake name but allows nicknames of your choice as your first or middle name. So, Don’t put your full legal name because it can assist the marauders to raid over you and your identity. Commonsense.org gives trustworthy information and helps to excite kids in a world of media.
- Don’t put your personal e-mail or your mobile number visible on your profile page because hackers or other illegal elements on FB could use this information to exploit you.
- Review the Activity Log page timely and monitor the photos or videos that you are tagged in. If this Photo of You is disgusting for you, then you can remove the tag or simply click Hide so that that stuff won’t be visible on your timeline.
- In the case of Live video streaming on FB, the default setting is always the existing setting set for regular posts on your timeline. So, check first before streaming live on FB that is for Public or Privacy level.
- If someone finds you on FB through your registered e-mail ID, then he or she can text you a message which will be shown in another tab on the Message page. You can limit this bullshit by restricting it to Friends of Friends or just Friends if you don’t want to be messed up.
- If you want to keep a particular person away from you and your FB Profile, then you can include him/her in the Restricted list or Block Users or even Block Messages.
