Facebook Privacy
May 24th, 2010 by WillDuke

I’m not going to delve deeply into the controversy around privacy and Facebook.  I’ll simply say that I’m not particularly happy about the erosion of privacy, but I’m not planning on quitting Facebook over it.  Facebook is where everyone is.  I think it makes sense to stay with your audience.  Zuckerberg says that Facebook will make privacy easier.  I think he’s motivated to do so, to keep Facebook viable.

In the meantime, you can, and should, tighten up your privacy security settings on Facebook.  It can be a long daunting confusing process, and this is what Mark says he’ll fix.  While we’re waiting for that to happen, check out the tool at Reclaim privacy’s website www.reclaimprivacy.org.  This handy tool will identify key areas that get you started thinking about your privacy.

Please post your experience or questions with this tool.  Does it help?  Does it make you feel better?  Are you thinking about leaving Facebook?

  1. I get this message:
    Sorry! It looks like you have access to the new Facebook privacy settings, and the scanner is not quite ready to check those settings yet. We are still waiting for access to the new settings so that we can update the scanner. Please follow our Facebook page to hear when we update this privacy scanner to work with your new settings.

    So I guess it wasn’t very useful at this time. But I liked the links from their page about useful tips for FB security. Thanks!
