In the meantime, it might be wise to do a little check-up. This weekend, a couple of friends and I were discussing our own profiles and how private they were. One friend mentioned that he made a point to occasionally logout of his Facebook and search for himself so he could check exactly what information was publically available.
Turns out, there’s an easier way than logging out.
I actually thought that my Facebook was completely private until I used this feature to double-check and realised that several old photo albums I had uploaded could be viewed by anyone who searched for me. Not cool.
This isn’t a new trick, but could be especially helpful as we enter the season of (potentially wild) holiday parties. Don’t let yourself unintentionally over-share!
Here’s how to easily check how private your profile is.
