Online privacy tune-up: Facebook's settings

Sharing things on a social network (e.g., Facebook) shouldn’t lead to a surprise of who gets to see it. Yet, the surprises are what make most people feel that their privacy is being infringed. It’s not that we don’t want to share, it’s that we want to understand exactly how and with whom we are sharing. However, the privacy settings are often confusing and difficult to find. 

Participants in this webinar will gain a better appreciation for online privacy, and leave better equipped to adjust their own privacy settings in Facebook. While the focus will be on particular settings in Facebook, the principles will be applicable for many social networks

This session will be hosted on the University of New Hampshire Blackboard Collaborate platform - users will need to have Java on their computers and be able to run a small launcher program to start join the webinar. You can check your system settings before the webinar here.
