Interesting Article on Facebook Security

Sunday night I begin our Facebook series "The F Word".

Interesting article here about the security of Facebook.  Parent you may want to take a look.  Another great reason to monitor your child's activity on Facebook.  Know their password and login info?  You need to.  Know if their FB friends are real or not?  You need to take a look.

Is the Addyouthpastor anti-Facebook?  Absolutely not, I use it every day.

Fortunately I think a more open and transparent Facebook alternative is just around the corner and maybe we can all mass-exodus.

Until then, here are the 50 x 170 settings and options you need to adjust to ensure your privacy on Facebook:
