    1. The new Timeline format exposes your old mistakes. Timeline, makes it
    easy for people to search back through your old Facebook posts, something that was very difficult to
    do in the past. That could expose private matters and embarrassing photos that you’ve long since
    forgotten posting.
    What to do: To hide Timeline posts that you do not wish to be public, hold the cursor over the post,
    click the pencil icon that appears in the upper-right corner, then click “Hide from Timeline” or

    2. Facebook apps steal personal details about you—even details that you specifically told
    Facebook you wished to keep private. Third-party apps are software applications available through
    Facebook but created by other companies. These include games and quizzes popular on Facebook
    such as FarmVille and Words with Friends, plus applications such as Skype, TripAdvisor and Yelp.
    Most Facebook apps are free—the companies that offer them make their money by harvesting
    personal details about users from their Facebook pages, then selling that information to advertisers.
    Many apps collect only fairly innocuous information—such as age, hometown and gender—that
    probably is not secret. But others dig deep into Facebook data, even accessing information that you
    may have designated private, such as religious affiliation, political leanings and sexual orientation.
    What to do: Read user agreements and privacy policies carefully to understand what information you
    are agreeing to share before signing up for any app. The free Internet tool Privacyscore is one way to
    evaluate the privacy policies of the apps you currently use ( Please or Register to view links). You
    also can tighten privacy settings by clicking the lock icon in the upper-right-hand corner. Select “See
    More Settings,” then choose “Apps” from the left menu. Under “Apps You Use,” click “Edit” to see
    your privacy options.

    3. Facebook “like” buttons spy on you—even when you don’t click on them. Each time you click
    a “like” button on a website, you broadcast your interest in a subject not just to your Facebook friends
    but also to Facebook and its advertising partners.
    But if you’re a Facebook user and you visit a web page that has a “like” button, Facebook will record
    that you visited that page even if you don’t click “like.” Facebook claims to keep web-browsing
    habits private, but there’s no guarantee that the information won’t get out.
    What to do: One way to prevent Facebook from knowing where you go online is to set your web
    browser to block all cookies. Each browser has a different procedure for doing this, and you will
    have to reenter your user ID and password each time you visit certain websites.
    Alternatively, to eliminate cookies created during a specific browser session, you can use the
    “InPrivate Browsing” mode (Internet Explorer), “Incognito” mode (Google Chrome) or “Private
    Browsing” mode (Firefox and Safari).
    There also are free plug-ins to stop Facebook from tracking you, such as Facebook Blocker
    ( Please or Register to view links).

    4. “Social readers” tell your Facebook friends too much about your reading habits. Some sites,
    including The Washington Post and The Huffington Post, offer “social reader” Facebook tools. If
    you sign up for one, it will tell your Facebook friends what articles you read on the site.
    Problem: The tools don’t share articles with your Facebook friends only when you click a “like”
    button—they share everything you read on the site.
    What to do: If you’ve signed up for a social reader app, delete it. Click the lock icon in the upperright-
    hand corner, select “See More Settings,” then choose “Apps” on the left. Locate the app, click
    the “X” and follow the directions to delete.

    5. Photo and video tags can hurt you. They could let others see you in unflattering and
    unprofessional situations. If you work for a straitlaced employer or with conservative clients or you
    are in the job market, you already may realize that it’s unwise to post pictures of yourself in
    unprofessional and possibly embarrassing situations. But you may fail to consider that pictures that
    other people post of you also can hurt you.
    A Facebook feature called photo tags has dramatically increased this risk. The tags make it easy for
    Facebook users to identify by name the people in photos they post, then link these photos to the
    Facebook pages of all users pictured.
    What to do: Untag yourself from unflattering photos. Hold your cursor over the post, and click the
    pencil icon. Select “Report/Remove Tag,” then follow the directions to remove the tag. Enable
    review of all future photos you’re tagged in before they appear on your Timeline. Click the lock icon
    in the upper right, then “See More Settings” and select “Timeline and Tagging.” Then click “Edit”
    next to “Review posts friends tag you in before they appear on your Timeline,” and click “Enabled”
    on the drop-down menu.

    6. Your Facebook friends—and those friends’ friends—may reveal too much about you. Even if
    you’re careful not to provide sensitive information about yourself on Facebook, those details could be
    exposed by the company you keep.
    Example: A 2009 Massachusetts Institute of Technology study found it was possible to determine
    with great accuracy whether a man was gay. This was based on factors such as the percentage of his
    Facebook friends who were openly gay—even if this man did not disclose his sexual orientation
    If several of your Facebook friends list a potentially risky or unhealthy activity, such as smoking or
    barhopping, among their interests—or include posts or pictures of themselves pursuing this interest—
    an insurer, college admissions officer, employer or potential employer might conclude that you likely
    enjoy this pursuit yourself.
    What to do: Take a close look at the interests and activities mentioned by your Facebook friends. If
    more than a few of them discuss a dangerous hobby, glory in unprofessional behavior or are open
    about matters of sexual orientation or political or religious beliefs that you consider private, consider
    removing most or all of these people from your friends list or at least make your friends list private.
    Click your name in the upper right, then click “Friends,” then “Edit” and select “Only Me” from the
    drop-down menu.
