Facebook Privacy

I’ve had a Facebook account since college, when it was only for colleges and everything was relatively private. The priorities and audience for Facebook has definitely shifted. Now the privacy settings are numerous and almost meant to trap the user into sharing their life with the world.

There is a solution. It was shared on Twitter and I had to check it out.

The website is ReclaimPrivacy.org. With a few simple steps you add the tool to your bookmark bar of your internet browser. Open Facebook and scan for privacy.  I was unpleasantly surprised by a few loopholes that I had left open in the security settings. I swear that last time I checked the settings everything was private – but I guess the last privacy policy update opened things up again. It was worth the 3 minutes it took to check it out.
