How to Protect Your Privacy on Facebook & Other Social Networks This article explains how you can protect your Facebook and Other Social Network account data if you use them.
For the first time in its history, Facebook has agreed to help companies track people and businesses using social networks.
Facebook is also creating a new “Privacy & Compliance” section on its site to better identify the types of data it collects and how it uses it.
Users should also be aware that if a company uses a different term to describe what it collects about them than the terms on its website, that company may not be able to comply with all of its privacy policies.
For example, if a provider describes how it collects information from users and their devices, that term may not include the words “tracking,” “cookie,” “identity,” “network traffic,” or “location.”
