New Privacy Settings on Facebook

Facebook continues to be a popular medium for students and college officials to communicate.  We have all heard horror stories of students posting some “not so flattering” material on Facebook for the entire world to see (including college admission officers).

Recently, Facebook upgraded their privacy settings and even though the new changes have received mixed results, it is a good time for everyone to review the material you have posted on Facebook and who can see it.  The posted a piece on the settings and what has changed.  However, I also like an article posted on in September titled: 5 Easy Steps to Stay Safe (and Private!) on Facebook.  You may have to apply some of the principles in the article using the new Facebook settings, but again it is still a good reminder!
