David retweeted a very useful article by New York Times this morning. And I spent nearly 10 minutes reconfiguring my Facebook privacy. It was a good 10-minutes spent to ensure my personal data is secured.
And for the ladies, did you know if I Googled your name, normally your Facebook account will be in the search results? Now you do. So I’m writing a visual tutorial for you to prevent Google from finding your Facebook account.
Step 1: Go to Privacy Settings under Account
After you’ve logged into Facebook, look at the top right corner and click Account. The Privacy Settings is in the dropdown menu.
Step 2: Click Search
Step 3: Uncheck the Allow
And, you’re done. But like any optimization exercise, it ain’t magic. You’ll need to give Uncle Google time to get up. How long exactly I don’t know. But be a little patient. 🙂
