Facebook. What are the first words that come to mind when you think of Facebook? Friends, pokes, messages, wall posts, and even profile pictures, but what about SECURITY!

The first thing we think about is almost never security, especially when it comes to teens including myself. So what can we do to protect ourselves? Fix the most common mistakes we all make in security!

  1. Change the pre-set privacy settings; Facebook sets all the privacy settings to "Everyone" when you first make an account. Check them and change them according to preference, but the best way to be safe is to set ALL of the settings to "Friends Only".
  2. Make sure all your "Friends" are really YOUR friends, people you actually know, don't just add people from your school solely on the fact that you go to the same school. People can lie on Facebook about themselves and even though they are trying to add you they might actually be out to harm you.
