No One Has Any Idea How To Stay Private On Facebook
Researchers at Columbia University surveyed students . . . all of whom are younger than us and probably use Facebook more than us, so they SHOULD know how to make Facebook work.
And 93% of them were publicly sharing something they thought was private. 84.6% were hiding something they wanted to share.
EVERY SINGLE PERSON in the survey fell into one or both of those categories. Which means ZERO PERCENT completely understood exactly what they were sharing and hiding on Facebook.
The researchers say the problem isn’t with us . . . it’s with Facebook. They make their privacy settings incredibly confusing, which makes it almost impossible to set your privacy the way you want it.
Which of course leads to the conclusion: DON’T TRUST FACEBOOK. If you have something you think should be private, it’s best not to have it online at all.
HERE’S a few tips on keeping your online information private.
