Today on Talk Mobile the topic is social network privacy, with a particular emphasis on Facebook and employers. The question of the week is whether or not your employer should be entitled to ask for your Facebook password. Most of us will most likely say absolutely not.
That doesn't mean they can't snoop anything you haven't made private or available to only friends. That's why it's a good idea to check your Facebook privacy settings now and again. You can even do it right from the Facebook app for iPhone and iPad. Here's how:
If you'd like to change who can see what you post to Facebook for everything you may post from the Facebook app, follow these directions:
Facebook also allows you to change settings on a per post basis for when you'd like to share certain things publicly and other things privately. Doing this will only override your privacy settings on that particular post but keep the default settings for everything else.
Our recommendation is to set default privacy settings to friends only at the bare minimum and then adjust for public posts on an as needed basis when you need to.
