Who Can See My Facebook Posts?
This is a question I often get from clients regarding Facebook Privacy. The answer is “that all depends”.
- How have you set your privacy settings for your Facebook profile and/or page;
- When you created the wall post did you leave the default of “everyone”, or did you change it to friends of friends, only friends, or a specific list of people before hitting the share button.
You might be asking at this point — how do I do either of the above? Also, what if I want to change the default Facebook Privacy from “everyone” to “friends only”?
Then, I’m glad you’re reading this because setting the appropriate Facebook Privacy on your profile, and sending messages to the appropriate target audience, are important.
Protecting your personal information is extremely important on the internet. The “everyone” default means absolutely everyone on the internet has access to that particular information. Check out the Facebook tutorial videos for information on how to control your privacy on Facebook, and understand how to control who sees your posts. These videos are available to everyone via Facebook’s Help Centre. If you still require assistance, call us at Original Ginger for some social media training.
