Facebook is one of the most popular social media sites around. The number of worldwide users is approaching a whopping 2 billion.

Connecting with people from our past and staying in touch with friends and family that live across the country is part of Facebook's appeal. But, one downside to being on social media is having to be constantly worried about your privacy.

The good news is Facebook has a Privacy Checkup that lets you review who can see your posts. It shows you who can see your profile information, like your email address and phone number as well. You can also check the settings for apps that you have logged into Facebook.

This Privacy Checkup is completely free and helps you review and adjust your privacy settings, which ensures you're only sharing information with people you want to see it.
