Have you heard about Facebook Places? It is a location-based featured (similar to Foursquare) that allows you to check in at a place of business. It will also allow your friends to check you in, showing where you are and where you’ve been. Does this seem like something you do not want to share with others? To edit these settings, go into your Facebook account under “Privacy Settings” there you will be able to edit the settings based on your privacy lists. When you are checked in or a friend checks you into a “Place” an email will come to you, such as the one below.
Privacy can be one of the biggest fears for users of the internet. Keeping yourself up to date and informed about privacy settings and policies can keep you safe online.
