Customizing Facebook Privacy Settings: A Guide for Students

As you know, we’ve been discussing recent news that employers are asking for job applicants’ Facebook passwords. Applicants have several options for handling these requests during an interview, but it’s also important that they manage their Facebook settings beforehand so that their profiles project a professional image.

April Pierson, an instructional designer at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, developed a guide for one of our business communication instructors to share with her students to help them customize their Facebook privacy settings. Her suggestions, complete with screen shots and easy-to-follow instructions, are available on her Adventures of a Learning Technology Consultant in Higher Education blog. Thank you, April, for sharing your expertise!
