This is a question about your Facebook privacy. My Facebook profile besides my email address and my phone number is all public. Nothing annoys me more when I wanna check some chick out on Facebook and her profile is locked down like fort nox. Can't tell her relationship status, can't tell how old she is and the only photo you are allowed to see is the profile photo.

 

For that reason if anyone wants to check my profile out it's pretty much all public. All of the info I just complained about not being able to see on peoples profile is all set to public.

 

Stuff I don't want people to see I don't put on Facebook.

 

 

What about everyone else?

While I don't really use it that often i still have it set to friends only for pretty much everything I can think of.  I don't need everyone seeing my contact information and if they care that much they're likely already a friend of mine or they can send me a message.

A poll about privacy, but it's public? :laugh:

 

 

I've just spent the last few days deleting everything from Faceberk. I'm not even a quarter the way through it all. :/

Alright - I'll bite.  I quite Facbook a while back, but am back on.  I keep my profile private completely. 

 

I am back on there on though for Family.  Oh yeah, one more reason, and sadly it is a mandatory if you are going to do much for your business and that is I have a public FB page for my company.   Other than that, personal stuff is private.  And even that, I blog about stuff and post personal things on my blog where I have more control over what is seen and used.  :)

How odd. Normally I just ask them...

My settings are set so that only people that are on my friends list can see everything. Everyone else gets my profile picture and my name. If I don't know you in the real world, I won't accept you as a friend. Actually, that's is true for 99% of my friends list, but the others I have known outside of Facebook as well.

I voted private because I use a list based permissions system on facebook that allows different people to see different things, but is more restrictive than "friends" or "friends of friends"

Only friends can see anything on mine. If you go to my profile as a randomer you'll see my name, pic and a few random cover pictures.

Friends for the most part, although per the privacy settings I've setup... I occasionally tag friends in photos or posts that their friends would be able to see as well.

Friends, really. I've been using FB less and less as time has gone on, as well.
