The new format for Facebook pages does not display your picture or name in association with “liked” pages. It would seem this would increase privacy to others seeing the types of pages you “like” but beware as your your picture and name are still viewable on feeds to blogs and websites, such as the one on The Career Centre blog.
Privacy is important to consider when using online social media. It’s a topic recently explored in our post, Using Social Media in Your Job Search. This article focuses on the pros and cons of incorporating social media into your job search and reminds users that the default settings in social media accounts usually make information public rather than private.
Since publishing that blog post, we discovered the unofficial facebook resource which lists the 10 Facebook Privacy Settings You Need To Know. Great information is contained in this list including Tip #4 which shows you how to remove your Facebook page from showing up in Google searches.
Do you have privacy concerns or tips to share?
