Some Facebook do's and don'ts

With our social media risk event coming to a close, it seems an opportune time to talk about Facebook's latest privacy policy, which happened to hit this week.

Consumer Reports Magazine reported this week on some best practices when using Facebook. They include:

1. Using a weak password

2. Leaving your full birth date in your profile

3. Overlooking useful privacy controls (i.e. limiting access to photos)

4. Posting your child's name in a caption

5. Mentioning that you'll be away from home

6. Letting search engines find you

7. Permitting youngsters to use Facebook unsupervised
