Ever wondered how to handle unwanted friend requests on Facebook?

Great advice from Brenna Ehrlich and Andrea Bartz…

OK, deep breath: If you dont already have a Limited Profile list, click on “more” next to “Lists” in the left-hand column and then click “Create a list.” Name it “Limited Profile,” “Professional contacts,” “Creepers,” whatever. Now surf on over to “privacy settings” under the arrow thats always on the upper right.

Ready, Set, Go! FACEBOOK Timeline about to launch!

facebookMy coaching clients and those who listen to me speak about social media have heard me say over and over again not to trust technology — ever. I caution people that although the delete button may appear to delete the information you’ve typed, it’s no guarantee no one will see it or for that matter that the information won’t be archived somewhere.  With that said,  I was very surprised recently how many posts I chose to delete when I upgraded to the new Facebook’s new timeline which is about to be imposed on everyone.

Timelines is just one of the many things announced in their F8 update and you’ll want to actively participate in.  I have many concerns, and just found a post which summarizes the problems and tells you how to protect yourself. It’s called 3 Fights to Expect When You Get the New Timeline.


Facebook Phasing Out Places

Tucked near the end of Facebook’s 1,200-word blog post detailing a slew of privacy changes was a short obituary for a Facebook feature unveiled with great fanfare last year: Facebook Places, a check-in service that allowed users to share their locations on Facebook and redeem coupons.

Facebook quietly admitted that it would be “phasing out” Places, which had been available only on cellphones, while at the same time expanding the ability to add locations to posts by allowing users to tag cities, venues and landmarks in everything from status updates to Wall posts using any device.

Facebook now using your photo in ads

On Friday, March 18th, 2011, Facebook started using your photos in ads that will appear on the profile page of your contacts. If you want to stop this, do the following:

  • Click on Account
  • Click on Account Settings
  • Click on Facebook Ads (a tab)
  • Choose “No one” on the drop-down menu

and save changes.  Any problems, give us a call and either myself or one of my team can walk you through this and other privacy/security settings you need to know about.

PayPal Policy Change

PayPal has made a number of changes to their privacy policy and fee structures.  If you make use of this handy online payment tool, I strongly urge you to log into your account, look at the Notifications section on the top right side of the page for the latest Policy Updates.

Social Media 101 + Facebook for Business (January 21, 2010) Whitby, ON

Business and our lives are more and more driven by the computer. The whole phenomena of social networking has made a substantial mark on business and society. New opportunities with the likes of Linked-in and Facebook are exciting but need to be properly managed to maximize business advantage and protect your privacy. Millions and millions of people are using these media but few use them to their business and personal advantage. Also these areas are changing daily and it is important to be current. We will be delivering a number of small group sessions with a hands-on approach to Social Media. The small group format will allow those with wireless connected notebook computers to actually sign on and establish or modify their profile in real time. Others will be able to establish or modify their profile online through the facilitator’s computer. All participants should gain from the workshop their own profile and knowledge on how to add to it, ensure they are as safe as possible and maximize the business opportunity offered. These sessions should offer participants everything you wanted to know about Facebook but were afraid to ask.
