So you’d like to have more control over who can see your information on Facebook? Check out these three handy tools to help control what people see on your Facebook profile.
1. Preview your public profile.
So all your friends can see that your favorite singer is George Strait and you get a kick out of the sneezing baby panda video...but who else knows what is on your profile?
Use this easy preview your profile tool to see what your profile looks like to the public.
You can even see how it looks to your Facebook friends by typing their name in the box at the top of the page.
2. Control the settings for each of your individual posts.
Everyone on Facebook can set his or her own default privacy settings. But what if you want the public to see the sneezing panda video you post?
Control the privacy of each post using the drop down menu to the left of the post button in your status update.
The posts default to the most recent privacy setting you selected. So don't forget to change the setting back on your next post.
3. Review friends' posts that tag you before they appear on your profile.
Your friend wants to tag you in their status update about the fun camping trip you are taking together, but you don’t want it to show up on your profile. With these controls you can enable the option of reviewing tags before they appear on your wall.
Go to privacy settings where you can edit your tag settings by selecting the option next to "How tags work". That will give you the option to enable the profile review.
Bonus Tip: Facebook is ever-evolving and changes privacy options frequently. Stay up-to-date with the latest security settings by liking Facebook’s Security Page.
