It's a well-known fact that having a Facebook account isn't great for your privacy. If you aren't careful, you could post the wrong thing to the world and get in trouble at work, school, with family or even the law.
Naturally, hackers and identity thieves are also watching to pick up tidbits they can use against you. Burglars even use Facebook to pick targets to rob - make sure you know how to stay off their list.
So, it should come as no surprise when I say that having the right Facebook privacy settings is critical. It keeps the wrong people from seeing what you post.
Even if you think you already have them set correctly, Facebook changes its settings and where they're located frequently so you should double-check regularly. Don't forget to share this tip with your friends and family so they can be safe, too!
