Confident Computing #855 - Facebook Privacy Settings 2021

This week's articles & videos

When was the last time you reviewed your Facebook privacy settings? It's probably time you did so. Especially if your answer was "Privacy settings? What privacy settings?"

Facebook has a long list of privacy related settings, and while things have improved over the years they can still be overwhelming, and easy to miss. Just ask anyone who's accidentally published something publicly when they meant to share it with only a few friends.

Facebook Privacy Settings 2021 - What they mean, and what you need to change goes into the details.
