Childnet International has produced a new guide to help users understand changes and important steps to take following Facebook’s announcement that they are beginning to roll out the new Graph Search feature in the UK. It’s essential to share this resource as widely as possible to help Facebook users prepare for changes and take action in order to keep their information private.
It includes 3 top tips to help people check what appears about them in a Graph Search: http://www.childnet.com/ufiles/Graph-Search-Privacy.pdf.
In particular, it is worth being aware that if someone is tagged in a photo and their privacy settings are set to ‘Public’, then this photo may appear to someone who is not friends if they searched for “Photos of name]”. This content would have been difficult for ‘non-friends’ to find previously, so it is really worth checking. Childnet explain the steps for checking this content in tip 2 in the guide.
Please share this resource with your community.
