If you are new to Facebook or if you are a regular, there are certain tips that you have to bear in mind in order to stay protected on Facebook, the sole reason being that it is a social networking site.
First of all, do not disclose any personal information on Facebook. Limited your profile information to what’s basic. Personal details when shared can cause people t misuse your identity or use your information to dupe you.
Protect your photographs. Lock your albums so that they are not public. You never know when your photos are being misused.
Do not be under the impression that your Facebook profile is truly restricted to your family and friends only. You can be tracked by authorities in case of job interviews, lawsuits etc. So what you share should not be against you in any way.
Do not blindly accept all the friend request that you get. Ensure you know the person and that it is not a fake profile. There have been many reported case of identity snatching just for the hackers to get information about a profile.
Never leave your profile unattended on a public computer. Never forget to sign out. If people get access to your profile, there is no way that they will spare your profile. For fun they can post any status message or pictures on your behalf. This can lead you in serious trouble.
In the end, it is a social networking site and you must use it solely for a time pass purpose, to stay in touch with your family and friends, it is not a professional linkage site nor is it your curriculum vitae that it must have each and every detail about you. So stay clear and protected and enjoy your virtual presence on Facebook.
