Question from Mary S.: Hi Rick. I need to know how I can set my Facebook privacy so that only my Friends can see my photos, albums and etc.
I recently got a private message from a total stranger saying he enjoyed all my albums and pictures. That really upset me!
I need help changing my privacy settings so people that are not my friends won’t be able to see my pictures. PLEASE HELP???
Rick’s answer: Mary, what you need to do is change the global privacy setting for your posts from “Public” to “Friends”. Here’s how:
1 – Click the down arrow located at the right-hand side of the blue bar art the top of the Facebook window.
2 – Click Settings.
3 – Click the Privacy link over in the left-had column.
4 – Select Friends from the drop-down menu in the gray box labeled “Who can see your future posts?”.
5 – Click the Limit Past Posts link at the end of the line that reads “Limit the audience for posts you’ve shared with friends of friends or Public?”.
6 – Click the Limit Old Posts button.
From now on your posts, photos and albums will only be viewable by the people on your Friend list. This includes the posts, photos and albums that you have already posted in the past.
I hope this helps Mary. Good luck!
