Precautions while using Facebook
Sit down and closely look at your Facebook page and consider what a malicious personcould do with any of the informationyouve posted. Try to be objective and ask yourself, If I really hated this person or wanted to take advantage of her, is there anything I could do with this information to mess with her? said Olds. If the answer is yes, then consider what kinds of information youre posting on your Facebook page and make the appropriate adjustments. Analysts also warned users to not post any information that could be used in an identity theft scheme. Avoid listing your birth date, home address, childrens names, phone numbers and social security numbers.
