Privacy concerns and privacy controls on Facebook are ever changing. When you post a picture of your kids at a family gathering, which one of your Facebook friends can share it?

Every action you take on Facebook has privacy and sharing implications that need to be considered before you upload that next selfie.

Fortunately, thanks to vocal demands for transparency from both Facebook users and government regulators around the world, Facebook has been making the process of managing your privacy easier. Below is our step-by-step guide to taking full control of your Facebook privacy settings.

  1. Why can’t Fbook leave the settings alone once I set what I want. Like I want most recent news feed and everytime I sign on I have to ensure it is most recent that is marked . As well every so often if I am on Fbook for a longer amount of time I have to go to home page and ensure I have most recent clicked. It is stupid that it has to be baby sat like I do not know what I want. As well that desktop notifications thing when not on FBk sucks. I got to settings and have to go to settings everytime I sign on to FBK to change it to off. I do not want to know what’s going on on facebook if I am not on Facebook. If I want to know who posted whatever I will sign on and I have to turn desktop notifications off every time. It stops me from going onto facebook because it is just annoying! Why doesn’t facebook have rememebr this setting or just leave the settings I want?
