Risks for poor Facebook privacy settings

Yesterday I posted a blog where you can see how to change your Facebook privacy settings here as Facebook changed its privacy settings. To view the post click here. Hurray. It is also important for users to know what the risks are and why they need to change/customize their privacy settings in order to be better protected.

With regards to how personal information and private data can be used by FB, private businesses, employers, and public authorities, the users’ data is vulnerable, subject to risks by profiling, creating filing systems, providing the opportunity among users to publish, post, process, tag and adjust personal data, which may lead to unpleasant situations such as, damaged working/family relationships or getting fired from a job.

By having a strong privacy settings, which does not allow a user to be photo  tagged or signed into a certain place, it can help protect that user’s privacy and also his dignity and work/family relations (e.g. someone tagged as being drunk or signed in to a location in Paris when he still at work in Alabama).

The only way a user can keep himself safe is to keep up-to-date with the new privacy settings, how those work and could be changed. For this reason E-crime Expert offers tutorials, educational and awareness campaigns and tips. The most recent Article on how to change those settings is here.
