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.
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.
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
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
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.
THANK YOU
