The contro l of privacy settings has been simplified with the new features, various possibl e sets can be made with one click. The following guide shows, in my view a meani

ngful approach to protecting privacy. Opt-out as standard The protection of privacy within Facebook is increasingly becoming the responsib ility of the user, and many settings are configured for the intrusion, that info rmation is generally available to the public without interference by the user an d must be specifically prohibited by the user (opt-out) .. Facebook privacy in changing times Matt McKeon recently the changes in privacy on Facebook over time shown: The view of the pictures and the detailed sequence 2005 - 2010 are in my blog, " Facebook: The development of visualization of privacy" can be seen. Tips to protect privacy On the following pages, I explain the privacy settings of Facebook, and give var ious recommendations about the protection of privacy. These recommendations are my subjective view, depending on the user, intended use and friends can make oth er adjustments sense. Important! Facebook offers several ways to protect privacy, but every shot is more importan t than the rational use of Facebook, never publish content that you have not pub lished publicly in doubt want. Imagine if in doubt before publication always the question: "Can I stand behind this publication, if it were visible in the newsp aper tomorrow?" 30/05/2010 Page 4 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines 3rd Friends List Friends Lists understand and apply A central and important point in connection with the privacy settings are the fr iends lists. The configuration of the friends list is different depending on the size of Facebook friends a lot of time,€but brings many benefits and simplifies many functions and settings in Facebook. Facebook describes the friends lists a s follows: Friends lists allow you to assign your own private friends groups. For example, you can create a friends list of your friends who meet weekly in a book club. Yo u can find friends lists for all your organizational needs created which allow y ou to sort your friends into groups quickly view and send messages to your lists . The following points must be understood in the context of friends lists: A fri end can be added to multiple friends lists friends lists such as tags used are friends lists, specific privacy setting assigned to be the most used friends lists, privacy experts call "Friends," " family "and" business ". However, the n umber of lists and their designation and the combination is optional. The most i mportant thing is to be understood that for the default privacy setting is alway s the most restrictive setting is used. An example: My friend John is someone wh o I know from work, but also in the leisure time to spend with him. I add him to the friends list "BIS" and "add friends". If my "BIZ" friends photos in which I was not able to see marked John will also not be able to see these photos. For me, I made the friends list (Figure 1 friends list). The menu item "Friends" and "pages" of Facebook automatically provided. "Friends" shows on all connections, "Pages" shows all my Facebook pages, with which I am noted as a fan. The follow ing lists of which I have created yourself, "BIS" are friends with whom I have t

o do primarily for business, "FAN" had I added all of Facebook Pages. This list can be added at will. Figure 1 friends list The management of the friends list: http://www.facebook.com/friends Account -> E dit friends 30/05/2010 Page 5 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines Create friends lists A new friends list I create create by clicking on "Create New List" in the upper central area (Figure 2 friends list) Figure 2 friends list Create Then opens a new window (Figure 3 friends list to create / assign friends). In t he upper left can I enter for the new list a name (eg my friends). Just below on the right side I can look for friends by name or in the list, including friends I would like to add to the list, select. To finish the preparation, I click dow n on "Create list". I repeat this process for each list to be established. Figure 3 friends list, create / assign friends Add to friends friends lists There are already friends lists, I can let the menu item "Friends" all my friend s in alphabetical order and directly to one or more friends list (s) Add (Figure 4 friends assign to friends lists). Assign Figure 4 friends to friends list In addition to the profile one option appears (Figure 5 select friends lists), w here I can choose which list to be added to my friend. In this method, I repeat the process several times if I add a friend several friends lists or would like to remove. Select Figure 5 friends lists 30/05/2010 Page 6 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines Friends List edit / delete Existing friends list can be edited after clicking on the appropriate list (eg r ename, add, of other friends) or removed again. In the top of the list in turn e dit the menu list is available (Figure 6 friends list) are available. Figure 6 Edit Friends List Click on "Edit List" appears to create the same window as in Figure 3 friends li st / has been shown to assign friends. Click on "Clear List", a window appears w ith a prompt (Figure 7 delete friends list). Figure 7 friends list to delete

30/05/2010 Page 7 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines 4th Manage privacy settings General The settings for privacy can be (more or less) centrally managed: Figure 8 privacy settings The administration of the privacy settings: http://www.facebook.com/settings/?ta b=privacy account -> privacy settings 30/05/2010 Page 8 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines Standard settings Facebook is for the conversion in May 2010 predefined "standard settings availab le, which can be easily applied. The options are: All Friends of Friends Onl y Friends The recommended default Custom fast and easy way to provide priv acy set, but in my opinion are not optimal. All Figure 9 default "All" If set to "All" are in principle all the information from the profile freely ava ilable. From the perspective of data and privacy protection is strongly discoura ged by this setting. 30/05/2010 Page 9 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines Friends of Friends Figure 10 Default "friends of friends" If set to "friends of friends", some information can be seen also for friends of my friends, other information for only direct friends. Friends Figure 11 Default "Friends" When set to "friends" all of the information only to direct friends are visible. 30/05/2010 Page 10 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines recommend Figure 12 default "Recommended" If set to "recommended" some information for everyone, some information for frie nds and some information is visible only to direct friends.

Custom Figure 13Standardeinstellung Custom The Custom setting "indicates which user settings were made. 30/05/2010 Page 11 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines Individualization with the help of friends lists Most of the settings within the Privacy settings can be customized in the same w ay. Facebook knows basically three basic settings. Privacy Figure 14 - Levels In addition to the three basic settings within the range of "Friends" further su bdivisions are made. Now if I want to set as example, the settings to "biography ", I click on the button in this box (Figure 15 adaptation of the visibility) an d then get the choices (Figure 16 choices visibility). Figure 15 Adjustment of visibility Figure 16 choices visibility By default, I get to the options (Figure 16 choices visibility) of the following : All For anyone on Facebook visible friends of friends to all my friends an d their friends visible only friends for all my friends are visible Custom I ndividual visibility Choose according to my specifications I am here "Custom", f urther settings of visibility possible (Figure 16 choices visibility), then from here the previously defined lists of friends come into play. Basically I can fo r example set that all my friends can see my data. Under "The following people h ide from" I can now explicitly set to see which people or friends lists this inf ormation shall not (a process of elimination). In the example in (Figure 17 indi vidual privacy "just friends with a process of elimination") may all my friends see the note, but friends do not belong to your friends list "BIZ". Possible but also the visibility only to certain people without friends lists (Figure 18 ind ividual privacy "Certain Persons") or only for me would be set (Figure 19 Indivi dual privacy "only I"). 30/05/2010 Page 12 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines Figure 17 individual privacy "just friends with a process of elimination" Figure 18 individual privacy "Certain Persons" Figure 19 Individual privacy "just me" 30/05/2010 Page 13 of 35 Facebook - The Facebook privacy guidelines

One of the biggest dangers within Facebook is that you can be met on komprimitierend en photos - you can indeed determine themselves which photos you upload searched , but no influence on what your friends are uploading. Basically, each of your F

acebook friends out on a screen fitted with a tag. Who can see your pictures met , but you can determine yourself. Figure 40 Example of a negative image met http://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=privacy account -> privacy settings -> Cus tom Settings Figure 41 privacy - photos and videos in which I am markeiert I suggest here, the setting made so as not only see just friends, business conta cts but not the pictures and videos, upon which You have been marked can. Also a good opportunity here would be the restriction to be chosen so that only you yo urself can just see these pictures. Photo albums protect Compromising photographs are as already mentioned earlier, a major danger in Fac ebook. It is very important that you decide well and distinguish to whom You wil l provide insight into what the photo album.€The Facebook privacy settings to al low different settings for each photo album. What "security level" you use is, o f course you leave yourself a restriction ought to "just friends; Except BIZ" Bu t you at least choose private photos.

Usually in this context are frequ ent posts on the Board of possible new potential partner to read. Whether you do your relationship status, and changes in relationship status want to show, you have to decide for yourself. I personally amused me regularly if I ever-changing relationship status from "in a relationship" to "it is difficult" to "single" s
