Facebook is a massive online social network. It has many users and there is a good chance that you are one of those users. You use Facebook to connect with your friends and family by sharing what is on your mind. You can also upload pictures and videos to share with your contacts. Overall the site is a wonderful way to stay in touch with the people we know.
However such sharing raises many privacy concerns. Facebook has constantly been under the spotlight for its bad handling of privacy settings. The main criticism is that Facebook does not simplify privacy controls enough; resultantly people who do not bother going into advanced controls leave the privacy settings as they are which sometimes has unwanted consequences.
Thankfully there is one tool that handles all Facebook privacy issues very competently. This tool is Privacy Defender.
Privacy Defender is a Facebook application. The application has been created by Reputation Defender with the aim to simplify Facebook’s often confusing privacy controls. To start using the service, click on the orange “Learn More” button on the application’s homepage; after this you will be prompted by Facebook to allow the application access to your account.
When you allow the app Facebook access, it will show up a screen explaining how to use Privacy Defender.
As the instructions explain, all you have to do is drag the gray bookmarklet to your bookmarks toolbar or add it as a bookmark.
When you click on the Privacy Defender shortcut, your Facebook privacy settings will be evaluated by the application and you will be shown some easy controls to your overall Facebook settings.
The interface is quite user friendly and will be convenient for many Facebook users, particularly new ones. With simple clicks and a pie-chart like display, you will be able to set up your privacy. With the privacy issue out of the way, you can continue enjoying all that Facebook has to offer.
