  1. 1. ABHISHEK GUPTA
  2. 2. About Facebook  Facebook is a social networking service launched in February 2004, owned and operated by Facebook Inc.  Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow Harward University students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Huges.  By April 2011, FACEBOOK has recorded a startling 139.4 million registered users.
  3. 3. Managing Security Settings 1. Using a Secure (HTTPS) Connection: Click the drop down arrow next to Home on the upper right side of the screen and select Account Settings. Click Security in the left navigation panel. Click Edit next to Secure Browsing. Select the Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible checkbox. Click Save Changes.
  4. 4. 2. Managing Privacy Settings: Click the drop down arrow next to Home on the upper right side of the screen and select Privacy Settings. Options of sharing: 1. EVERYONE 2. ONLY FRIENDS 3. FRIENDS OF FRIENDS 4. CUSTOMIZE
  5. 5.  Using One Time Passwords: It can be risky to log into Facebook from a computer you don’t own. To get around this, you can use the one time password feature. To do this, you must use the cell phone listed on your Facebook account, and text the message “otp” (for one time password) to 32665. You will receive a text message response with a one time password that you can use to access your Facebook account. This password is only good for 20 minutes. It’s a good idea to use this feature anyone you access Facebook from someone else’s computer.
  6. 6.  Recovering a Hacked Account: If you see posts on your account that you didn’t write, or are unable to login, your Facebook account may have been hacked. If your account is compromised, go to http://www.facebook.com/hacked and follow the instructions. As soon as you do this, Facebook will lock your account. Facebook will then ask you to complete a four step procedure to unlock your account. Once you have recovered your account, be sure to set up all possible security features, especially secure browsing (https) and the login notifications feature.
  7. 7.  Other Security Considerations: When you create your Facebook account, don’t display your birthday, hometown or schools you attended to everyone. Since identity theft is a big issue, limit this to family and close friends. Keep your Internet browser current. Since new malware and viruses are discovered all the time, having the latest software will help eliminate these problems.
  8. 8.  Change your Facebook login password often. If you share a computer (or use a public one), don’t set the option to remember any passwords you enter into websites.  Make sure you click the drop down arrow next to Home on the upper right side of the screen and then select Log Out when you end your Facebook session. If you simply close your browser, your account is still active.  As a rule, don’t click on suspicious links. These might be embedded in a suspicious spam message or video posted on a friend’s account. When you click on this link, malware might be loaded onto your computer. The best rule is to use your common sense.
  9. 9. FACEBOOK TIMELINE Timeline is quite a simple feature, introduced by Facebook with the goal of putting a timeline context behind things you post and ways you interact with the site.
