Shelly Palmer Radio Report – September 9, 2014

Facebook wants you to know exactly what you’re sharing with whom, and its latest feature, ‘Privacy Checkup,’ will help you do just that. After a successful test run in May, Facebook is now asking all of its users to complete the checkup, which makes you review your privacy settings and double-check your sharing preferences. The checkup covers a handful of different areas. It’ll show exactly who can see your posts, which third-party apps you’ve linked your account to, and what personal information is visible on your profile. None of these privacy features are new to Facebook – they’ve all been around for at least several months. The point of the checkup is to simplify Facebook’s privacy settings, which are known for being overly complicated. This is the latest move in Facebook’s recent charge to make its privacy and security easier, after tightening the default share setting and unbundling app permissions earlier this year. To make sure your Facebook settings are set up the way you want, make sure to complete your Privacy Checkup today.
