Using Facebook Wisely

As we know social media feeds and fuels the stream of consciousness publishing. Not just by you but amongst others too.

It suggests 5 steps

Step 1: Make Friend Lists

Step 2: Who Can See What on Your Profile

Step 3: Who Can See Your Address and Phone Number

Step 4: Change Who Can Find You on Facebook via Search

Step 5: Stop Sharing Personal Info with Unknown Applications
