The First Facebook Privacy FAQ Launched with a Key Tip: How to Set Secure Browsing


San Diego — Today the World Privacy Forum published the first of a series of new tips for users of Facebook, Facebook Privacy FAQs. “We are publishing online privacy tips for Facebook users in bite-size pieces so people can decipher the complex Facebook privacy settings and make meaningful changes and choices,” said Pam Dixon. “We are finding that too many consumers are confused about what the choices mean and how to make them.”

The Facebook Privacy tips will be published weekly on Fridays, and are in the form of FAQs, or Frequently Asked Questions. The first FAQ is about how and why to ensure that Facebook’s secure browsing feature is turned to the on position. This feature being on means that when you are using Facebook, Facebook will use a secure or encrypted connection when one is available.
