Clean up your Facebook
Barbara Ortutay, AP (which I used to trust), says the Pew Internet and American Life Project found that people are managing their privacy and other rights better on the internet.
Nearly half deleted things from their profiles in 2011, up from 36% in 2009.
Supposedly the administration is proposing tighter protections, but personally I think if they did it’s so they can be the only ones spying on us.
You need to delete ”friends” more or not accept them in the first place. Delete names from photos.
Sixty-seven percent of women set their profiles so only friends can see. Men do this less.
People with the highest level of education had the most trouble figuring this out. So THAT is why I don’t get any of this.
Young people deleted unwanted comments more.
I am merciless about this. I don’t know how this works half the time—people on my “wall” on FB are friends of friends or something—if they say pro-administration things, I zap off their comments.
Since I don’t know who they are anyway…
Why are we doing this—remind me.
