How to Stay Safe and Connected on Social Media FB!

In today’s post I’d like to share with you a number of settings which could help tighten the security and privacy settings of your account on Facebook.FB Image

As Facebook look and feel change so frequently , it’s quite crucial that we keep checking the settings along the way as they do change as well with more features added to the site.

I’d like to show you some of the important settings that you can tweak in just a few clicks, while at the end I am sharing with you a video done by a Cyber Safety Expert which features most if not all features that may need your attention to keep your profile safe and secure online.

How to turn off facial recognition on FB?

Go to Settings >> Timeline and Tagging and at the very bottom click “Edit” on the question that reads “Who sees tag suggestions when photos that look like you are uploaded?”. Make sure to set the options to “No One”.

How can you block someone while you don’t want FB to notify them when you’ve done so?

Go to Settings >> Blocking>> Restricted List and there you need to click on “Edit list” and add that person you need to put some restrictions on.

How can you make sure strangers don’t find you on FB from just searching you up on engines like Google or Yahoo?

Go to Settings >> Privacy >> Who can look me up? and there you need to adjust the option that reads “Do you want other search engines to link to your timeline?” to “No”.

If you’re interested in adjusting more of your privacy and security settings, I’d recommend you watch this video done by a Cyber Safety Expert, Leonie Smith on “Advanced Facebook Privacy Settings 2015”.

Now you can see how little things you can adjust that could possibly put you and your beloved ones in a safer position when it comes to social networking.
