This tutorial was created to get you up to speed on how to create, use, and maintain a Facebook page of your own, including understanding complex Facebook privacy policies and settings.
1: Getting Started with Facebook
If you’re thinking about joining Facebook, this video will show you everything you need to get started. We’ll demonstrate how to create a Facebook account. We’ll also explore the Facebook Home page, Timeline, and Facebook for mobile devices.
2: Understanding Privacy on Facebook
Even if you’ve been using Facebook for a while, you may not realize that some of the things you share could be visible to the public (or other users on the site). This can impact your privacy in a variety of ways. For example:
You could be sharing personal information you’d rather keep private, such as your photo or profile information.
Embarrassing or unflattering posts could negatively affect your personal and professional reputation.
Third-party websites and applications can access and share information from your Facebook account.
Therefore, it’s important that you understand how privacy on Facebook works.
3: Adjusting Your Privacy Settings
Even if you’re an experienced Facebook user, modifying your privacy settings for the first time can be a little confusing. And because Facebook can change these options without much notice, it’s important to review your privacy settings periodically. We’ll talk about many of the privacy settings on Facebook, including how they work and why they’re important.
