By: Wong Jia Wen
Hello everyone today I will talk about how to set your Facebook Settings and help you control who
you share information with.
This slide will walk you through your Privacy Settings and will talk about how to protect your privacy
by following some simple actions. Let’s get started. The first page you see is your newsfeed.
Next, click the drop-down arrow in the top-right corner.
This is where you can see and edit your Account and Privacy Settings as well.
But it’s also OK to select “friends of friends.” You need to pick the setting you feel most
comfortable with. Remember, it is not safe to accept friend requests or respond to
messages from people you do not know in real life. It is OK to say no!
Let’s look at Security. From this login alerts label here, you may choose either get an alert
when anyone logs into your account from a new device or browser. It is great to choosing
yes if you are an alert person.
From this section, you can choose to let your friends post on your timeline or not.
You can also setting on take a look on what your friend post on your timeline before it
display out from this section.
When you comes to who can see things on my timeline, you can click on “view as”
button on the right hand side to check out how others see on your timeline.
Here is an example after you click on “view as” button.
The next section is where you can block or restrict users and activities. If someone is
making you feel unsafe or uncomfortable on Facebook and you want to block them –
enter their name or email address here. This will mean that the person is no longer able to
see or talk to you on Facebook. The person you block will not get a notification saying that
you’ve blocked them.
After you click in “block” button, there are many similar outcome of the name you
type list out on here.
So, double confirm and click on the person you want to block on here. Example, click on
“block Madhana” button.
You can also block app invites, from games like Farmville, as well as event invites from
people who you may want to stop getting invites from.
Facebook can be a fun place to connect and share with your friends. You can be safe
online by setting up some safe settings to protect yourself and your friends. Double-
check your settings often because Facebook can change things.
