Facebook Panic…

   It is true that Facebook has had, does have, and likely will have its share of problems for some time to come, but is this latest “timeline stumble” really any cause for concern? Maybe that depends (as many things do) on one’s perspective and/or how Facebook is used. Privacy is a matter of concern in the views of many people, and Facebook does say that they protect their users privacy, but it’s still a fact that what’s on Facebook is “out there” and if Facebook shifts it around the look of things can change.

   So as to the posts that many thought were private messages made public on Facebook (hence panic) recently, Facebook’s response is that this is part of the timeline rollout and those were simply older posts. As Facebook grows it will undoubtedly have more such issues so it makes sense to understand that and to be certain of where your security stands in any social media setting. Facebook allows you to adjust your security settings to any of several levels and it is worth looking at to ensure your own peace of mind if nothing else. If nothing else make sure that the URL showing in the address bar starts with https:// as opposed to http:// because that’s more secure. These settings can be found below the drop-down arrow on the top-right of your Facebook page where Account and Privacy settings are listed. Do your best to be safe, but please don’t panic...
