Precautions while using Facebook
Facebook is an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California.
46. Be careful not to provide too much information
Facebook is intended to be a social network. However, you do not need to go into every detail about your wisdom tooth being pulled or how your latest hot date ended. People do like details but only in an appropriate environment. If you feel the need to share then do it in person or over the phone. This also includes your family and friends. You may feel the need to speak about your friends latest date or their ongoing medical treatment but they may not want this information known to the world. They may have gone at great lengths to keep their medical treatment private and there is nothing worse than a non family member knowing more than the immediate family members. Respect their privacy and you will be better for it.
47. Understand Facebooks security settings and use them
Most analysts called this step absolutely mandatory. Larry Hawes, an analyst at Gilbane Group, noted that users need to find out where the security settings are on Facebook and take the time to learn how to use them to control what information is shared with people, applications and Web sites.
48. Whos your buddy
Come on. This is not high school and Facebook isnt a popularity contest. You dont need to befriends with everyone. Actually, a good reality check is if this person is actually a friend or family member in real life. If theyre not an actual friend, why would you want them to know when youre stuck working late, getting ready to go on vacation or that you just bought a new computer or flat screen TV?
49. Beware of those applications
Ray warns that using a Facebook application can give broad permission for whoever developed that application to access your data ... and your friends data. That means you may want to think twice before you take quizzes with titles like Would you make a good FBI agent? or Whats the theme song to your high school years?

Only use applications from sources you trust, Ray added. And periodically check the list of applications youve used and given permissions to. You might be surprised how many youve approved, he said. Much like your PC, you probably want to regularly remove any applications you dont use and trust.
50. Malicious eyes
Sit down and closely look at your Facebook page and consider what a malicious personcould do with any of the informationyouve posted. Try to be objective and ask yourself, If I really hated this person or wanted to take advantage of her, is there anything I could do with this information to mess with her? said Olds. If the answer is yes, then consider what kinds of information youre posting on your Facebook page and make the appropriate adjustments. Analysts also warned users to not post any information that could be used in an identity theft scheme. Avoid listing your birth date, home address, childrens names, phone numbers and social security numbers.
