What not to do on Facebook

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Facebook is can be an outstanding way to reconnect with people and keep in touch with friends -- if you follow some basic common-sense rules. It's also a great source of entertainment and a wonderful tool for networking. Again, though, you have to pay attention to what you're doing.

Keeping Facebook friendly is the key. Andrea Eldridge of Nerds on Call shared some tips to do just that with Scott Pasmore.

First, you want to limit access to your information. Review your privacy settings to make sure your posts and photos are viewable just by friends.

Second, control your connection. Facebook now allows you to modify account security settings to "Secure Browsing" to help keep your account from being hacked.

Finally, make sure you know who is seeing your posts. Friends can see when you post comments or score well on a game. Keep that in mind, especially if you're logged in while you're at work, especially if you're friends with your boss and coworkers.
