  • 2. Privacy Settings
    Sort Friends into Lists
    Establish Privacy Settings Based on lists or individual people
    Make Individual Wall Postings (or your entire wall) “Private”
    Preview and Test Privacy Settings
  • 3. Lists
    Facebook allows you to organize your friends into lists.
    Although lists aren’t just for privacy, sorting Facebook friends into lists makes it MUCH easier to manage privacy settings!
    You can create as many lists as you like.
    Friends can belong to many different lists.
    While this information will provide you with examples and steps for creating lists, you are the best judge of which lists you should create and use for sorting your Facebook friends.
  • 4. Lists
    Examples Might include:
    Friends (ACTUAL Friends)
    Church Friends
    Censored Work
    Censored Family/Friends
    Boys/Girls I have a crush on…
  • 5. Friends?
    All friends are NOT created equal!
    Facebook Friend = Connection on Facebook. You know them, or at least (hopefully) you know who they are, but probably you don’t want them to know your every secret or private business.
    Actual Friend = People you actually know, trust and talk to on a very, extremely regular basis. They would still be your friends, even if Facebook never existed. It’s probably OK for your Actual Friends to see your personal information.
  • 6. Lists
    Start by sorting your facebook “friends” into lists.
    There are two different types of lists:
    “Show” Lists
    “Hide-From” Lists
  • 7. Censored Lists
    Show Lists are pretty obvious. Most of your lists will be “Show” lists.
    Hide-From Lists are groups of people that you may want to HIDE some information from. (I call these my “Censored” lists)
  • 8. Lists: Here’s How it’s Done
    Under “Account”
    Click Edit Friends
  • 9. Lists
    Click All Friends
  • 10. Lists
    Hover the Cursor to get this, or click Create a List.
    I blurred my friends’ info to protect their privacy!
  • 11. Privacy Settings
    Now that your friends are organized into lists, privacy settings are a piece of cake!
  • 12. Privacy Settings
    Click on Privacy Settings under Account
  • 13. Privacy Settings
    Set Privacy for Basic Directory Information – Click View Settings
    These settings will determine how people who are not your friends can see and find you on Facebook.
  • 14. Basic Directory Privacy Settings
    These settings determine what ANYONE can see, even if they’re not your Facebook friend.
    Click Each Option to Set Privacy for Basic Directory Information
  • 15. Basic Directory Privacy Settings
    Who can Search for you on Facebook?
    Want to connect with everyone you’ve ever known? Go with “Everyone.”
    If you’re EXTREMELY private and don’t want anyone to be able to find you on Facebook, go with “Friends Only.” (Only the people you’re ALREADY connected to on Facebook will be able to find you in a search.)
  • 16. Basic Directory Privacy Settings

  • 23. Privacy Settings
    Be sure to click here and set up privacy for all of your photo albums (ie: for both privacy AND safety, maybe only friends and family can see pics of the kids or the inside of your home.)
  • 24. Privacy Settings: Photos
    For each photo album, decide who you want (or don’t want) to see your pictures. Click customize to choose friends/lists.
  • 25. Privacy Settings: Wall Posts
    You can also make Wall Posts private. Click the little padlock to select specific lists or people who can see (or not see) what you post on your wall!
  • 26. Privacy Settings: Wall Posts
    Make visible to these people/lists
    Hide from these people/lists
    Type in the names of specific lists or people.

  • 28. Chat
    Check out what the lists do to your chat box!
    Click the on/off switches to be online with certain lists, and be offline with other lists.
    Did you notice? Lists aren’t just for privacy! Use them to determine who is able to see you as “available” in chat.
