Several Links Re: Online Safety

Facebook is always pushing the boundaries. Regularly you have to check your FB settings. When FB releases new features they usually default them to on or the loosest setting.

Here are a couple of recent articles that tell you about Face Recognition tagging and how to turn them off.

  1. Go to your privacy settings.
  2. Click “Customize settings.”
  3. Scroll down to “Things others share.”
  4. Find “Suggest photos of me to friends.”
  5. Edit accordingly.
