Facebook Privacy Settings 2010

facebook privacy settings 2010

The image transfer vs. Facebook: You must not choose and facebook privacy settings

In the past, I allow about facebook privacy settings on Facebook and how it affects your photos in the discussion of the photo viewer and people to print photos. It also explains how to change your facebook privacy settings on Facebook, an album of photos that have been added, changing, and the photos you have on your wall. I want to explore this issue, why do not you have to sacrifice upload photos to Facebook in the interest of facebook privacy settings. Instead, you can sort your photos to be separated from their colleagues, friends and family in the download process. This allows you to have a Facebook account to keep the different parts of your life.

Just because someone has a picture that does not want somebody does not show up on Facebook necessarily mean that it is appropriate (well, maybe sometimes), more often, they just want a little facebook privacy settings and freedom to take photos without trial to . Publish fortunately do with absolute facebook privacy settings options on Facebook; it is easy to separate the different parts of your life so that you not take long if you upload a photo doubtful. It is easy to do. Just follow these steps each time you upload new photos on Facebook.

If you create a photo album, you can the facebook privacy settings of this album, so that only certain people can see and others not. Use facebook privacy settings and safe your facebook. Facebook privacy settings are needed for protection your facebook.

Facebook allows you to control your facebook privacy settings in two different ways to make it easier for you. For a particular album, you can find some people who just want to be able to an album or a handful of people who cannot be seen. Of course, who has the lowest number is the own choice. To make this easier to understand, I’ll give you two scenarios.

Scenario 1: Suppose you went to a concert with five of his friends and they want to be able to see the photos in this album. In this case, as follows:

Under the title “making this visible, these people” to “specific” People from here you can choose the beginning of the name of the person to the right person in the list of people who appear to »… Place the letter of the name until you want the list of people to see the selected album.

Scenario 2: I recently went to dinner with friends and a beer. They took pictures and had clear liquor on the table. Your grandmother does not know that you drink and you have to accept your friend request! Do not worry, downloading the photos in this album to “hide from these people” to start the name of your grandmother or any other person who cannot will not see the album and the candle.

You can also facebook privacy settings for photos as well as warning signs: You cannot change certain photos of all the photos on the account highlighted go to the upper right corner of Facebook, then select Facebook privacy settings “then on” Custom facebook privacy Settings “, click in the middle of the page. “To work on other things” and “pictures and videos that I’m strong in” Click “Change facebook privacy settings” and then you can “Custom” from the drop-down menu. You can then hide or selected images you can see photos of the category described above.

Baseline

No stress on the photos you are after on Facebook. Get used to change the facebook privacy settings of your albums when you upload them, and do not forget to change the facebook privacy settings of their pictures are already on Facebook.

How To Configure The New Facebook Privacy Settings [June 2, 2010]

Facebook Privacy Settings 2010 Yahoo

Protect your identity online (Internet)

1) History – Hackers

2) Website owners

3) Your name

4) Your e-mail

5) What you sign up to

6) Information you expose unknowingly

7) Keeping you safe

You hear it on the news, you read it on the newspaper, you live with it everything without even acknowledging its existence. “Hackers have stolen identities” I have heard that line so many times this year, it is ridiculous.

Companies promising to “defend” your identity, memberships giving their words to keep your information to themselves only, the government reassuring that they will only have access.

All this is a lie as information ALWAYS gets leaked or there is an inside worker providing information out into the black market. Not only that, but securities on big companies are always exposed and hackers always find their way in.

1) History – Hackers

I will explain briefly on the type of hackers that there are out there for the sake of academical knowledge. These descriptions are not in dept, instead they are meant to slightly touch the subject and educate those are who are unaware of these titles on the cyber world.

1) Black Hat Hackers – These are the most infamous hackers there are. These are the guys you hear about it on the news due to committing crimes. These people are whose purpose is to gain information and use for their own need. They could be anyone.

-Black Hats tend to be professionals at what they do and are extremely well informed on everything related with the cyber world and crimes.

-Black Hats tend to be educated people who have worked many years to accumulate all the knowledge they hold. They are not your kid who uses “hacking tools” to scare their gaming buddies online.

-Black Hats is the image typically portrayed on movies.

2) White Hat Hackers – These are the lesser known hackers simply because they do the clean up work that goes behind the scenes cleaning up the messes from Black Hat Hackers.

-White Hats are the heroes of the cyber world. They fight crime using their hacking knowledge to patch exploits on system and assure that your information does not gets leaked out or easily acquired by any Black Hats.

-White Hats are professionals at what they do. They have as much knowledge as Black Hats, but use their skills to fight crime rather than aid it.

3) Gray Hat Hackers – These are the somewhat known hackers simply because they are unpredictable on what their actions might turn into. They are known as “Gray Hats” because it’s a mixture between the color White + Black = Creating: Gray

-Gray Hats are essentially neutrals on what they do. They might decide to do what’s right even if there’s some other entity telling them that it’s wrong or could be vice versa.

For example, Black Hat steals bank information and leaks out on the internet. Gray Hat could either decide to either use the information OR let the owners, authorities, or the companies know of the exposure.

2) Website owners

Websites, there are millions of them around the world in all languages. You can keep yourself entertained on them or you can become smarter reading potential useful information as you are reading now.

Do you ever wonder “Who owns this website?” or “How can I find out who owns it?” I decided to include this topic on here since more and more people decide to pay for hosting services to have their very own website for either personal usage or some sort of business.

Well, unlike in the real world where you fill out papers and they get stacked or hidden in some compartment where not a random person could have access. Websites expose your information unknowingly. Maybe not the websites themselves, but the companies that provide hosting services.

I will use this website “facebook.com” as an example to teach what I’m talking about. There is something known as a “whois” that essentially tells you who registered the domain name. You can easily Google “whois domain” and a huge list of websites that allow you to whois either a location or a domain to find its location.

My favorite website to do whois is: http://whois.domaintools.com/ Now, if we do a whois on facebook.com, here’s what we get :

Registrant:
Domain Administrator

Created on…………..: 1997-03-28.
Expires on…………..: 2020-03-29.
Record last updated on..: 2010-11-30.

Domain servers in listed order:

ns5.facebook.com
ns4.facebook.com
ns3.facebook.com
ns2.facebook.com

As you can see it exposes a lot of information that you wouldn’t want strangers to get a hold of you and then use to sell for their own good. Iit displays the information of the company providing the service for the domain or hosting.This is also how you can contact a company if you want to report a website with disgusting content such as child pornography.

I’m not going to whois a person’s website since it would be against the rules to expose personal information about anyone, but I believe that you get the idea of what can be done to discover information such as address, name, phone number, fax number, and more using nothing but a website name.

Experienced website administrators always should use Private domains to avoid exposing information to the public as much as possible.For example hackforums.net If you have a website, whois it yourself and find out whether if you are exposed or not.

If you are, call the company you registered your domain and request your domain to be put as private. They might require a fee of around $7 extra a year, but it’s worth it knowing that you’re not exposed. You could also find out the ISP or company by doing a ping on an IP. Example, Open Command Prompt and type “ping facebook” the response will be an IP.

Once you have that IP, you can use: http://iplocation.net/ To tell you where the servers are located and giving you a definite location for the company’s machines.

iplocation.net/ Can also be used to find the location of a person’s location with their IP.

3) Your name

Your name is as unique as you can be. Your parents/guardians named you and that’s what makes you, you. Your name can be your worst enemy when you are online as it can be used to expose so much information about you to the point of where you could be blackmailed.

Where should you ever use your real name online? NEVER. Why? Because, using your name alone anyone can find out where you live within a matter of 5 seconds. Websites such as: http://com.lullar.com/ , http://www.pipl.com/email/ , http://www.spokeo.com/ , http://www.emailfinder.com/ Make it extremely easy to search names, e-mails, etc to dig information about whoever you want.

There are more websites in which I personally use to dig information about people, but I will not mention them since I do not want the news station going crazy on a new rage of identity exposers. Here’s an example of a person I searched for the sake of showing.

I have satellite pictures using Google Earth to pinpoint exactly where she lives and what her house looks like, but I will not expose that. Where is this information normally exposed? Hmm…I’ll let you guess. Or maybe not…The answer is Social Networks. Ah, Facebook, Myspace, Orkut, and so many others…The list goes on and on.

I highly recommend that you NEVER use your real name, instead use an edited name or initials instead rather than exposing your real name to the real world. If your friends on social networks already know you, they should not need to see your complete name as they will already know already.

For example, Bill Gates My recommendation would be to use “Billy Gates” simply because a letter being off makes it so incredibly difficult to pinpoint someone. You can use your imagination for what you should replace your name instead of your real name. That is, if you want to avoid being looked up.

Something I have found based on experience is that it’s much more difficult pinpointing teenagers on the internet since they are not normally registered with government database that eases finding them.

If you are a teenager, do not have your parents names exposed as the name of your parents can be used to pinpoint you or vice versa, if you are a parent. Ironically, it’s the teenagers that expose more information than adults and yet, they are the ones harder to pinpoint.

4) Your e-mail

Your e-mail, the one you use to check on your everyday business or activities online. The one you rely to deliver things to you safely. Question is, are you delivering to it safely?

Probably not, or at least I hope you are. The e-mail problem is an easy fix since all it takes is common sense. If you have various accounts such as Social networks, have an e-mail specifically for messing around. If you have accounts for serious business such as your Paypal, Bank, etc…

Have an e-mail that only you have access to and is different from your regular “messing around” e-mail. If you work for any companies or have services with an ISP, avoid using their e-mail services to register on important websites where your money is dealt with such as Paypal, AlertMoney, banks, etc… Why?

Because they have been known to get hacked leaving all your information exposed for hackers to gorge in. Instead, I would recommend focusing on big companies such as Yahoo, Hotmail, or Gmail since these are much more secured companies and will always be up 24/7 any time of the year. Not much to say on that, just have different e-mails for different activities for security measures.

Not only that, but also have different passwords that require extensive typing with various complicating symbols such as: you%(3cool That above is a ridiculous example, but I believe you get the idea.

You know what hackers love the most? Not having to do much work and having everything set for them easily for the taking. For example, if you are infected with a keylogger, a hacker would love to have 1 e-mail to have access to everything.

So, this gives you an idea why you should have a variety at all times with up-to-date information to assure that you could retrieve it, in case if it were to get stolen.

5) What you sign up to

Ever wondered why you get so much spam e-mails?

Well, it’s simple. It’s because e-mail collectors acquire a list of e-mails in which they can mass e-mail to send spam. Just as I mentioned earlier, have an e-mail for messing around and e-mails for serious business.

Avoid using an e-mail for all activities as this will only clog your inbox with useless e-mails that will steal your valuable time. There are many websites which sell their database of e-mails to E-mail spammers for a certain amount of money behind the scenes or the collectors themselves have set traps through the internet such as Phishing to acquire a list of e-mails to spam.

Avoid registering to websites such as products and random useless subjects that promise to pay you money for signing up or trying their products. Seems to me like it’s common sense, but it’s good to know.

6) Information you expose unknowingly

Well, I hope that I have given you a good idea of easily information can be acquired using the internet. Privacy does not exists anymore on the internet. If you use Social Networks, try to have your information concealed as much as possible from the public and do not expose valuable information such as Birthday, location, or name to keep yourself as underground as possible.

You have to consider that information could be leaked physically or electronically as well. Keep yourself up-to-date and informed to know if a company you might use has been breached or not. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of…er_history As they say, Google is your friend. Use it when you need it.

7) Keeping you safe

This is probably the most important part of the tutorial as this is where the most incidents occur due to infections or traps. Infections or traps can range from: -RATs (Remote Access Tool) which essentially give completely control of your computer.

-Keylogging which retains a log of all the keys you ever press on your keyboard.

-Phishing which retains a log when you manually input your information on a fake website emulating an original website.

-And more, but those above are the most common.

How can you protect yourself? Around 90% of malware on the internet was coded to infect Windows Operating systems. I got that number from PC World about a year ago, forgive me if it’s incorrect now.

Anyway, assuming that you run on Windows you are the ones are the highest risk of getting targeted or infected. You will want to always have your computer clean and secured having the proper tools. All these tools are the best of the best and are all free. They are probably better than paid security software.

How do I know this? Well, there are websites where you can scan malware after you crypt them (making them undetectable) to ensure that they are not detected by Anti-virus of any kind. Avira is the one that people always have a hard time bypassing, so I can safely say that it’s the best from my personal experience of crypting and scanning.

Download and install all these tools below and I can assure you that your computer will be protected 1000% better than what it might be as of now. Get the free versions. http://www.malwarebytes.org/ ,  http://personalfirewall.comodo.com/ , Avira Anti-Virus – Follow the instructions on that link on how to get it free.

The other option is using a different operating system which has a lower percentage of being targeted. You don’t have to spend tons of money on Apple computers, instead you can get a free operating system from the Linux distributions.

The easiest to use and most similar to Windows looks is Ubuntu. You can install Ubuntu as a normal program on Windows and once it restarts, it shows you the option to choose Ubuntu over Windows. You can watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdI8_92QTkQ To learn more in dept.

It’s very simple, so don’t be afraid to try. The video focuses on completely replacing your current operating system Windows and replacing it or dual booting with Linux Ubuntu.

If you are a noobie, I would recommend you stop at the part where he goes to: Wubi Installer – Ubuntu It’s as simple as going Next, next, next on any normal installation and whenever you restart your computer, it will ask you to choose either Ubuntu or Windows.

Running under a Linux distribution will put you at around a 2-5% of getting infected with anything. Not only is Linux good, but you don’t have to worry much about installing anti-virus or anti-malware software to keep your computer clean and running.

Invasion Of Privacy Facebook

invasion of privacy facebook
isnt it invasion of privacy for your mum to read your text or facebook inbox?

Basically my mum tried to read my facebook inbox and i was like erm no and she was like let me see it, and i told her the phone was for her because it rang thats when she gave me the fricking ipod back (imagine if the phone wasnt for her, she could’ve read it), she didnt read it but if she did i would feel so bad because there are personal things on there to my friends and i havent deleted them because im still inboxing them, its not finished. + she didnt read my text but again she tried to once, that’s pathetic, and the annoys me, this is why i dont trust her, and i dont care if shes my mum, you might use the excuse she brought me the phone, but she didnt buy me my facebook did she? no, i created facebook on my cousins laptop, so no. I am so angry, i am a 14 year old girl and entitled to my own privacy. :/

In my opinion it’s definitely wrong for parents to invade their children’s privacy like that with no good reason. Trust and respect should be a mutual thing, and although adults have more rights than children i still think that as a teen it’s only fair to be given a certain amount of privacy with social networking etc.

The only time i think it’s right for parents to read their child’s diary/facebook/texts/chat logs is if they have genuine concerns about the safety of their teen, so if they think the kid might be self harming or thinking of suicide that would be a fair enough reason to invade privacy. If you’re just a normal teen and aren’t getting yourself into any kind of harm or trouble then have a word with your mum about mutual respect and trust and how you need to have some freedom now that you’re a young adult.

Facebook Privacy Information

facebook privacy information
Facebook privacy question(s)?

1) Would the email that you enter when you sign up appear to the public or any of your friends?
2) Can anyone besides my friends view my page?
3) Is personal information required?
4) What can you not hide (As in: Name, Personal information, etc)?

Any more privacy settings that you cannot hide would be helpful.
I do not want to make a facebook account if I know my information is viewable to people I don’t know, thank you!

You can hide everything. You can even keep people from being able to search your name. Just make sure you go to the “Privacy Settings” section (if you set up an account) and make those changes. Because I think when you first open it a few things default to everyone…

As far as personal information required…I don’t think that to open an account they require much more than name, age, and email…and yes you can keep even your friends from seeing your email address. Hope it works out for you.

Facebook Privacy When Online

facebook privacy when online
Facebook safety?

Hello all. I recently opened a Facebook account through the recommendation of a few friends. From wikipedia, I noticed that users actually faced privacy problems when it comes to their account. In fact, the recent introduction of Beacon seems to complicate matters. Will having this account affect me adversely in any way? Will my privacy be invaded even though I’m not logged on to Facebook. The Data Mining allegation seems quite serious! I fear that all my activities online will be known to my contacts on Facebook. Is this possible??
Hello. I will just like to add. Will my internet activities outside of Facebook be exposed to my Facebook contacts?

You can set everything to where ONLY YOU can see it. The great thing about facebook is that it allows you to restrict certain applications and not just either all of it or none of it. What you need to do is go to the privacy link at the top of your profile page, GO THROUGH EVERY privacy section, and you can decide how to set your profile settings there. If you want to set something to where only YOU can see it, you must click customize, click Only me AND THEN down where it says networks, click the None of My Networks options. Again you must go through EVERY STAGE, otherwise you will unexpectedly leave something that you may not want everybody else to see public.

Facebook Privacy Settings Can Actually Work For Your Company?

Facebook privacy settings is growing rapidly, is the first social networking site in recent years, more than MySpace, Bebop and other networking sites, which had already established a leading role in this type of network. Last year saw the launch of Facebook privacy settings pages, companies and groups, and was contradicted by many big brands and names in the UK.

The rise of Facebook privacy settings was not really a surprise, as it offers something for every one of all ages. You can talk with friends, connect, play, or just find things of interest where the business side really come into play This site enables the company to connect with millions of fans and also the name, to find new fans with current support the invitation of other fans have become.

It really is a great idea.

Some of the most notable brands and businesses include a Facebook privacy settings page:

McDonalds

Top Shop

EA Sports

Microsoft

Macmillan Cancer Support

And there are literally thousands and thousands of other cases, charities, agencies and companies use Facebook privacy settings to advertise to connect their products and services, and related to more people. Facebook privacy settings advertising is one of the most widely used online marketing online, so you soon gain ground on Google Awards and affiliate branches means growing.

But why a company has a Facebook privacy settings page?

It is a very good question, because even if the pages are generally available in many companies, the advertising actually makes a statement or just a domino effect of everyone seems to have jumped up.

Of course there are advantages in having a Facebook privacy settings page for your company, including:

Look for more clients – Facebook privacy settings allows companies, their products, which means that through a combination of Facebook privacy settings pages and commercial advertising, you can actually find new customers, which remains as television advertising or magazine to provide support means facebook privacy settings.

Care for customers – Customers and fans seem to these groups, because as soon as the love as something worth publishing new resource added to the group, to appear in the pages of all the fans. This means that if your company has a new promotion or special offer is available directly in front of millions of people as “like” you.

Special Offers – special promotions, where we see a great interest in the inclusion of these pages. If you build many thousands of his followers, the next time you are have a special event or promotion, with a single click you can get your message to all people is only possible with a text before it is too expensive or e-mail campaign.

But the mere fact that in reality is not 100% sure that everything is how these pages are indexed. From the sides were introduced and the abolition of facebook privacy settings, there is no doubt that these sites could act as a good name, and come back to be part of your SEO campaign in time, but now not much to suggest that when it comes to growing evidence that a junior to have these sites.

Facebook Privacy History

Facebook’s Social Plugins Challenge Google

By Charles Nicholls, Founder and CSO of SeeWhy, Inc.

 

Some eight weeks ago, Facebook announced its Open Graph and social plugins. By almost any measure, this can be considered one of the most successful launches in history. Within 24 hours Facebook had served 1 billion ‘Likes.’ Within one week, Facebook Like had been implemented on 50,000 websites. After only six weeks, more than 100,000 sites had implemented Facebook Like. Wow.

 

With Like, Facebook is set to challenge Google. Like is rapidly becoming an index of content on the web, where the index is built based on mass popularity as opposed to an arbitrary Google algorithm. The impact of this cannot be underestimated.

 

Facebook is the number one website in the world by page views and already refers more than twice the traffic to news and media sites than Google. Web users spend more time on Facebook than all the time spent on Google, Yahoo!, YouTube, Microsoft/Bing, Wikipedia and Amazon combined.

 

If Facebook is the next Google, then Facebook’s social plugins are your ‘SEO’ tool kit for optimizing social commerce. Of these, Facebook Like is, by far, the most important—and also the easiest to implement with just one line of HTML.

 

Given the impact of Facebook’s social plugins, we decided to run an internet survey of emarketers to discover how marketing plans have changed. 476 emarketers participated in the SeeWhy Research internet poll on Tuesday, June 15th.

 

 

It’s taken only a matter of a few weeks for emarketers to act on this: Almost 7 out of 10 of the emarketers surveyed have already implemented Facebook Like or plan to implement it.

 

Since it is just as easy to unlike content, emarketers need to be responsible about how they use ‘Like.’ Sending a stream of irrelevant posts to your new Fan’s wall will result in a very quick ‘Unlike.’

 

Next in priority for emarketers’ implementations is Facebook ‘Login with Faces’ (which replaces Facebook Connect). Facebook Login enables visitors to log into their Facebook accounts on ecommerce websites with their Facebook credentials rather than creating site specific accounts. It’s so easy to do that Facebook reports that site visitors are three times more likely to use Login than create a specific website account.

 

Fifteen percent of emarketers surveyed had already implemented Facebook Login, with a further eighteen percent planning to do so. That one third of emarketers plan (or already offer) Facebook Login on their websites is significant. One of the reasons is that a user signing in with Facebook Login is consenting to share their personal details with the website. This opt-in is very valuable, and emarketers know this.

 

Once opted in, on-site activity can be tracked and associated with an identity, and following a session, the individual fan can be remarketed to via email. This has long been high up the wish list: to be able to market to Facebook visitors with special offers and promotions. This new capability will have to be used responsibly since the opt-in permission is controlled by the Fan in his/her account settings; so it’s easy to un-login, although not as intuitive as many of the more vocal Facebook privacy advocates would like.

 

To find out more about Facebook’s social plugins, take a look at SeeWhy’s educational webcast looking at their impact on ecommerce here.
