Today’s Quick Tip….
Be careful when dealing with ‘Friends’ on Facebook
If you’re like most Facebook users you’ve probably accumulated a lot of “Facebook Friends” – perhaps hundreds, or even thousands of them.
Think about this for a second: How many of those “friends” do you really know?
And just as important, how many of the people on your “Friends List” are truly your friends?
Truth be told, most of us are “friends” with lots people we don’t really know at all outside of the digital confines of Facebook.
Therefore, it’s extremely important to always be thinking in terms of privacy and safety every time you’re preparing to post something on your Timeline. Just because someone is your “friend” on Facebook, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are actually your friend.
Anything and everything you post on Facebook can be seen by everyone on your Friends List, and that includes the people who might not have your best interests at heart.
