Facebook, Networking And Privacy7/29/2009 11:41 AM By Catherine T
If you have a Facebook account, you will want to be sure that you are protecting your privacy. Part of that picture involves going through the privacy settings and making sure that you only give certain people access to your personal information. The good news is that you can keep your friends and work contacts separate–customizing the privacy settings for each. Most people don't know about the fact that you can create your own lists, but it is a great tool to employ if you are going to use Facebook for something other than keeping up with friends.
Setting up a social networking group in Facebook is easy. First, go to your "friends" tab and look for the "lists" section on the left. Select friends, and choose "create new list" from the top. Name the list something like "work" or "professional" and then select the people that you want to go into that group. Once you have your work and friends separated, go back into your privacy settings and customize what you do and do not want your professional contacts to see. This list function is a terrific way to help you use Facebook for networking without compromising your privacy.
