How To Stay Safe On Facebook

Facebook Inc. announced this week that its user base has grown to 1.39 billion active monthly users, defined as people who use the social network at least once a month. It is said that one out of every five people on Earth has active Facebook account.

More than one-half of those users log in to the site every day, as Facebook said it currently has 890 million daily users. Among those daily users, 745 million, or 83.7 percent, check the site every day via their mobile devices. Navigate through the labyrinth of Facebook privacy settings, and you get the impression they don’t want to make it easy for you. Check out the infographic below titled “How to Stay Safe on Facebook” on how you can keep your data safe.

You’d think such a popular program would be well-loved, but it still has quite some problem, from its apparent lack of respect for individual privacy. The dangers are spam messages, identity theft, stalkers, profiling and data harvesting. Facebook, just like any other “free” service, does have a cost, just not in dollars. In order to use their service, you allow them to use your private data.

But though we may all want to swear off Facebook forever, it does have its uses. Most of your friends and family are probably all on it. Facebook makes it so easy to see what they’re up to and keep in touch, even from hundreds of thousands of miles away. If you hadn’t “friended” them on Facebook, you might’ve never found out about your cousin’s new job or your high school buddy’s new baby. For many of us, the pros outweigh the cons. We’re willing to give up a bit of personal data in exchange for making our lives a bit more convenient.
