  20. 20. + Facebook: Photo Settings  You can set your photo setting in a two ways. The first is by album and the second is by an image. If you upload photos into an album directly, click the audience on the bottom right side of the album to set privacy.

  21. 21. + LinkedIn  To change your privacy, scroll over your setting buttons in the top right corner and select privacy & settings. There are many privacy settings here, however most deal with how your information is shared on LinkedIn.
  22. 22. + LinkedIn  If you want to adjust the information LinkedIn users can see, click "edit your public profile.” In order to keep your connections private, deselect everything. You can also make other changes under privacy controls, including who can see your activity feeds and your connections, unfollowing, blocking people, and much more.  Simply click the link of the setting you want to change and make the proper adjustment. Most importantly, make sure you save your changes before you navigate away.
