It is time, yet again, to check your Facebook privacy settings. Facebook is trying to encourage people to control their privacy on an item-by-item basis. So, whenever and however you post, you should be checking to see if what you’re putting up is for public view or just for friends or specific lists of friends. While the benefit of this is to think specifically about how each item you post will be viewed in real time, it also means that you won’t have blanket protection unless you set your controls accordingly. For a guide to making sure that your settings are the way you want them, take a look at this guide on The Washington Post site.
