This post has been a long time coming! Even though I feel that there is a lot of information out there to support teachers and students with this, many of us still get it wrong. We BELIEVE that we are secure and safe but, especially with regular Facebook changes & updates, we are not!
Checking - and rechecking - your Settings
As a general guideline, you should only have 'friends' be able to see your updates. A great way to check is to 'view as' so you can see what different people AND the general public can see when they view your timeline.
I was shocked to see some extremely inappropriate spam on my timeline when I 'viewed as public' and was able to rectify the situation immediately. I strongly recommend that you 'view as public' regularly just to be sure...
Another important note is that if you upload from another device, the settings may differ allowing everyone to see photos that you have uploaded - worth checking!
Should I use a FB Page, a FB Group OR a blog?
Information summarized from this source and from my own thoughts. Please contact me if you are unsure of what to choose!
