Intro to Facebook Presentation – Facebook, How to Get Started Safely

March Program for the Central Florida Computer Society – Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Many people do not use Facebook for several reasons. Many are extremely concerned about their privacy and fearful of sharing information with the wrong people. Most of these people are not aware of how they can enjoy Facebook and limit their vulnerabilities and exposure. Hewie Poplock will present a program “Facebook, How to Get Started Safely” to CFCS on March 16.

He will show the many favorable uses of Facebook, and how you can connect easily to many old & new friends and places. He will also show how to use Facebook’s settings to protect your information, while enjoying the service. He will show you how you can be a “lurker” or be active and yet be safe.

There are more than 1.23 billion of Facebook active users. Of those 250 million play Facebook games. Over last 3 years, the number who are 55+ has exploded with +80.4% growth. As of Jan 2014, 32% of online seniors over 65 are using social networking sites and that number is about 15.6% of the Facebook users.

This presentation is aimed at those not using Facebook. However, those who do use it will gain some insights and will update their settings knowledge, as well as be helpful to those around them who have been hesitant to join Facebook.

The presentation will be at the General Meeting of The Central Florida Computer Society on Sunday March 16, 2014.

If I “like” the Applebee’s Facebook Page, then Facebook would be able to show my profile photo and a tagline that says something along the lines of “Your friend Amit likes Applebee’s, check out the Applebee’s Facebook Page to learn about our newest lunch combo.” To block Facebook from doing this, go to the “Ads” section of your “Account Settings.” Go to the section that says “Ads and Friends,” hit edit and then select “No One” where it says “Pair my social actions with ads for.”

If I “like” the Applebee’s Facebook Page, then Facebook would be able to show my profile photo and a tagline that says something along the lines of “Your friend Amit likes Applebee’s, check out the Applebee’s Facebook Page to learn about our newest lunch combo.” To block Facebook from doing this, go to the “Ads” section of your “Account Settings.” Go to the section that says “Ads and Friends,” hit edit and then select “No One” where it says “Pair my social actions with ads for.”
  73. 73. Facebook Precautions Real Names Does NOT Mean Friendly People Facebook’s real name policy means that most of the people you see are actually using their real name. It lulls people into a false sense of security, which can lead to trouble. This helps scams like the Western Union transfer scam and work at home scams take hold, because it starts with a local group and a friendly looking face with a real profile. The same goes for most
  74. 74. Facebook Precautions Careless Words Can Cost You So, you’re grumpy at your boss’s decision and you lashed out in a Facebook update? You could lose your job. Or maybe you griped about a piece of software you use for your job, could that be considered sharing company secrets? If so, you might lose your job and be up for a lawsuit. A bad attitude, inappropriate photos or poor grammar could also make you look like a bad decision in the eyes of an employer.
  75. 75. Facebook Precautions Data Costs Can Add Up When you’re using Wi-Fi at home, it’s no big deal for most people. You look at Facebook on your phone and upload photos and there’s nothing to worry about. Once you start using 3G or 4G data plans, you are usually facing a lower data cap and could face a large bill by using too much data. If you go overseas it gets exponentially worse, with roaming data costs set at exorbitant amounts for most carriers worldwide.
  76. 76. Facebook Precautions You cannot keep a photo private Editing the privacy settings for your Facebook photos can help us minimize our exposure on the internet but we must not forget that, although our albums are configured so that a small group of friends can see them, anyone can copy the URL of your image and share it with anyone. Do No Upload Photos in High Resolution. Images in high resolution are much more likely to be used for commercial purposes.
