Share: What social networking site did you explore and what settings in that site should users be aware?
As part of this assignment, I reviewed my privacy settings on my personal Facebook account. My account is set such that only my selected Friends are able to see my daily posts and my personal page. After experiencing the spamming of strangers attempting to be "friends" on this site, my privacy settings now only allow someone to add me as a friend if we first have a mutual friend. I have found that only rarely do I desire to add someone to my friend circle who I'm not already connected to in some way. Strangers are also not allowed to direct message me in my privacy settings. These messages are filtered to another folder so I can find them if needed (in the instance I'm selling something or trying to conduct business). This also prevents unwanted dialogue with spammers or even those looking to engage me with a scam. Regular review of social media settings is necessary to ensure a user is keeping up with safe privacy choices.
