  12. Introduction

  13. Facebook Profiles • We have set up to fake profiles to use as demonstrations. • These are completely fictional and for demonstrative purposes only. • Meet Sally and Peter!

  14. Privacy Settings • Who knows what their privacy setting is on Facebook?? • Recommended - we do not recommed this. • Friends of Friends This is not safe as most of your friends contacts will be unknown to you. • Custom - This is highly recommended. • Friends only - This will not give you the protection that

  15. Mobile Phone Settings • Facebook on your phone? • Different settings to you PC settings. • Checking in? you might want to think about who can see that!

  16. Changes in Settings • What happens when Facebook changes its privacy settings? • You signed up for this - it was in you terms and conditions that you agreed when you started to use Facebook.

  17. Who has your details? • Facebook, of course! • Applications • Games - 22 million active users of farmville and mafiawars

  18. Get me off Facebook!! • Sadly, once you’ve signed up, your profile will remail online. • You can never delete a profile - only deactivate it.

  19. What belongs to you? • Information on your page - once you deactivate your profile that information is no longer accessible - but it can be retrieved. • Posts on any one elses page from you remains THEIRS. You cannot control anything once you’ve left it on someone elses page. • Those comments are now subject to your friends privacy settings.

  20. Advertising • Ever noticed how all the ads you see on Facebook are something you might be interested in? • Facebook tracks key words you use on Facebook in order to direct specific advertising your way.

  21. Consequences • Anything you share on Facebook can be retrieved by anybody, anywhere, anytime. • Once something is uploaded onto the internet it is traceable. • You may regret something you post up - but even if you’ve deleted it - it can still be used against you!! • Leaving your privacy settings open means that you may attract unwanted attention.

  22. Cyberbullying • Who knows what cyberbullying is?? • Comments/status updates/pages/fake profiles have all been used to cyberbully before. • Cyberbullying is just as bad as any other type of bullying - sometimes it can be worse because the bully says it from behind a computer. • Phoebe Prince and Facebook • Megan Meier and MySpace

  23. Our Goal The purpose of this is not to make everyone deactivate their Facebook accounts. Responsible use of Facebook is our goal. Understanding the privacy settings is extremely important.

  24. The End • What have you learned? • Any questions?

  25. Thank You!
