Privacy Setting on Facebook including screen shots and options to fix. Blog post referencing slideshow at http://chefforfeng.wordpress.com/2012/05/18/privacy-settings-on-facebook-you-may-not-be-aware-of/

Not mentioned in the powerpoint but important!

One, if you lock down everything and then change your banner profile, it WILL show up as a new post on your page (even with everything else taken off) so any comments or likes made on that banner image will be visible to ANYONE logged into facebook. Please see page 15 on the slides.

Two, very important for fan/business page owners, if you have yourself set as the page owner publically on your fan page it’s viewable.

On your fan page in the admin panel, under “manage” then “edit page” then “featured” if you have yourself set as “a featured page owner” this information shows up on your personal profile (even with ALL info locked down) and it says “admin” of the page.
