Click Your Way To Facebook Privacy Settings

Spread the love

Here is a short tutorial of how I set up my Facebook Privacy Settings. I start out with strictest settings then work backwards to refine it to who I want to allow in.  To start, follow the tutorial as shown and your wall will be blank and your friends can only see you and your blank wall and  cannot see each other. So you’re thinking why would I set up my privacy settings that strict? Isn’t Facebook supposed to be for socializing and meeting people and making friends?  This tutorial is to show you how the settings function.  After you follow the tutorial, click on the preview profile button to see what your friends are seeing, then go backwards and adjust your settings to your liking, allowing who you want in.

I would think that Facebook would be confusing to new people in the beginning. I know I was and I had to do a little research to understand what it was all about. You might have heard that saying,  “you don’t know what you don’t know.” Of course everything is easy once you learn.

These settings will allow you to have more control over who visits.  You can determine how you want your business community to meet without having to deal with all of the extra stuff that friends and mutual friends bring to your site. For example. If you have teenagers, their styles of social networking is quite different than those of us in business. Although I am gladly open to social networking, I really don’t like the idea of opening my page for everyone on the entire internet to visit. The Facebook Privacy Rules changed in May of 2009 and it would be a good idea for you to refer to them with the new changes. This is the way I click my settings to set it up blank.

If you spend a little time familiarizing yourself with your site, it can be a great tool for your business.

  1. Hi Raena, thanks for sharing this!
    It is very useful for people who use Facebook and want a little privacy. After all, not everyone would like to share everything with everyone. I use Facebook mostly for interacting so my profile is like “an open book” but I respect everyone who use it wisely.
    Looking forward to read some more of your blog posts,

      Hi George,
      I really appreciate your feedback. I’m going to change the pictures so they are easier to read. Thanks!

    Thanks for this, Raena! It’s important that people know this about facebook, particularly because things change so swiftly. I often “recheck” my privacy settings every so often just in case facebook slipped in there with a change and I missed it.

    God bless you and your business!

      Hi T.K.,
      I replaced some of the images in this article because they were too small. I’m glad you liked it. Working backwards is the way to go because at first I didn’t set it up that way and it was hard to figure out.
