Here are some ways to protect your Facebook profile:
Ÿ Never add someone you don't know as a friend.
Ÿ Use the privacy settings to restrict people from finding you on Facebook, even through search engines such as Google.
Ÿ Avoid sharing personal information such as phone numbers and addresses.
Ÿ Choose not to share your tagged photos, as some of them could embarrass you later.
Ÿ Protect your photo albums by allowing only friends to see them.
Ÿ Be careful about which applications you allow to access your profile. They could be tied to hackers.
Ÿ Keep friendships and relationship statuses private.
Ÿ Go to the privacy settings and limit the visibility of things you post or receive.
Ÿ Never select "Everybody" on any information sharing list, as it includes people who are not on Facebook.
