configuring Facebook for greater privacy

Facebook_pic So you have a Facebook account, and your list of friends is growing. As much as you enjoy reading the news feed with their updates, do you ever worry that when you post what you're doing, you may be revealing too much to "friends" you would prefer to keep more distant?

You may have a story (or a joke) you would like to share with old college buddies, but hesitate to post it because it would mean that all your friends (including people like your former students, your mother, your boss) would read it in the next news feed.

You can compartmentalize your friends and your posts, and this post will show you how to do it. Takes just a few minutes.
