4 News Feed Privacy Don’t want everyone to know you broke up with your bf/gf? Un-check ‘Change Relationship Status’ Posting on your friend’s Wall will show up in mutual friends News Feeds unless you un-check ‘Show Wall Posts’ You can hide any comments you make on items by un-checking their box

5 Search Privacy To hide completely: – Under Search Visibility, choose ‘Only Friends’ to stay completely hidden To hide from people outside your network: – Under Search Visibility, choose ‘All of My Networks’ from the Networks dropdown box You can also remove yourself from Google results by un-checking the ‘Public Search Listing’ checkbox.

6 Tag! You’re It! Finding pictures of yourself that someone has tagged with your name can be embarrassing and can even lead to a lost job or friendship. Go to your Profile Privacy page and change the settings next to ‘Photos Tagged of You’. Choose ‘Customize’ and make the appropriate selection – Select ‘Only Me’, then ‘None of My Networks’ to keep all tagged photos private – Select ‘Some Friends’ if you’d like at least some of your friends to see these photos – No matter which option you choose, you can always use the ‘Except These People’ option, which will exclude those specific people.
