Facebook Timeline Users Tightening Reins on Privacy - Page 2
III. Mobile Updates
When you navigate to your privacy settings, the first thing you will see at the top of the page are your privacy options when updating from a mobile device such as iPad or smartphone using the Facebook app. If you regularly use your mobile device to connect on Facebook, be sure to change these settings accordingly to avoid sharing updates with people that you may not want being able to see them.
IV. Interacting on Facebook
Controlling privacy on Facebook Timeline also means being considerate of which pages you "like" and the comments that you leave on the posts and photos of others. Be aware that these interactions often appear in the news feed of those on your friends list, so before you decide to post that comment or "like" something on Facebook, ask yourself if you want your friends and family to be able to see it. If not, navigate over to your profile and click "activity log" to change the visibility of these interactions to hide them from your Timeline.
A final key reminder for controlling privacy on Facebook Timeline is to be aware that when you delete a friend, that person will remain a subscriber to your public updates unless you elect to block them. Additionally, keep in mind that just because you opt to hide an interaction from appearing on your Timeline, that doesn't necessarily mean that it doesn't still exist. It's always best to be considerate of anything that you post before you post it, but if you have doubts, sometimes it's simply better to delete the post entirely than to hide it from your Facebook Timeline. At any rate, don't find yourself at risk of handing over the wrong information to the wrong people. Always take advantage of whatever privacy controls that are made available to you, and you might just save yourself some trouble in the future.
