  14. 14. This shortcut allows you to quickly view and modify your personal account privacy settings. Settings available include Who can see my stuff, Who can contact me and How do I stop someone from bothering me. Accessing Privacy Settings To access the privacy and applications settings for your Facebook account, navigate to the padlock icon located in the upper right corner of your window. This feature is intended to make setting and viewing your current privacy settings as easy as possible.
  15. 15. Who can see my stuff? If you expand the Who can see my stuff drop down menu you have the option to view or modify who is able to view all of your future posts. Any changes to this setting only apply to posts you make after you have set this setting. This option does not apply to posts you have made prior to changing this option. From this drop down you can also view the Activity Log. The activity log is a feature which allows you to view recent activity such as posts you have made, things you have liked, or posts you have been tagged in. From this option you can also review any recent activity on your timeline. Take the time to navigate through these different options to familiarize yourself with the privacy settings that are available.
  16. 16. Who can contact me? Message filters have been added to replace the previous “who can send you Facebook messages option.” This option works like a spam filter, and only displays messages in your inbox from friends and people you may know. For more details about this feature, select the Learn More option. You will be redirected to the Facebook Help Center. You can also control who is able to send you friend requests from this option.
  17. 17. How do I block users? Facebook gives you the option to block another user from viewing your profile or sending you a friend request. You must use either a username or an email address to designate a user you wish to block. Blocking a user prevents them from successfully sending your profile a friend request, and only allows them to see content you have set to public. Note: This feature only blocks a user if they use an account with the information you provide. If a blocked user uses a different profile/email they will be restricted to the privacy settings you have set for your profile, and not blocked.
  18. 18. Privacy Settings & Tools Take some time to browse through the different settings available under the Privacy Settings drop down. From here you can control such settings as who can see your future posts, limit who is able to contact you, and restrict other Facebook users ability to look you up on Facebook using the private information (i.e phone number) that you make available to Facebook.
  19. 19. Privacy Settings & Tools From the Privacy Settings drop down you can control how other users can search for you. You can also allow or restrict search engines from accessing your profile and including your information, posts, pictures and other content in search results. If you enable this setting your Facebook content and information will be available in a simple Google search.
