Many people are nervous about having photos on Facebook. Threats loom over the heads of professionals who worry that someone of importance will see an unfavorable photo of them. There are a few ways to remedy this problem.
1. The ‘Limited Profile’ option allows you to add ‘friends’ to your ‘limited profile’ list. Each Facebook user can create their own ‘limited profile’ and can opt not to have photos visible.
2. By going to: a. ‘Settings’ b. ‘Privacy’ – ‘manage’ c. Scroll down to ‘Photos Tagged of You’ – You can choose who views the photos other tag of you among the following options: ‘Everyone’, ‘My Networks and Friends’, ‘Friends of Friends’, ‘Only Friends’ and ‘Custom’. I have chosen the ‘Custom’ option and selected ‘Only Me’.
3. By going to: a. ‘Photos’ b. ‘Album Privacy’ c. Next to each album uploaded you have the same options as 2. c. When I upload an album I am selective about which photos I upload and then choose the ‘Only Friends’ option.
Having photos makes your Facebook page more lively. Being selective about who sees your photos is smart.
