Ever wondered who, exactly, can see the information you share on social media?
New research reveals that almost two thirds (64%) of Irish people feel uncomfortable about their social media privacy.
Now Facebook is coming to town, opening the doors of the Facebook Café at SOMA on Tuckey Street (off Grand Parade) for a complimentary tea or coffee and a privacy checkup of your Facebook profile.
The majority of respondents in the survey conducted by One Poll on behalf of Facebook (67%) say they worry about who is looking at their posts on social media, almost the same number of respondents worry about their real world privacy, for example CCTV footage (66%).
According to Facebook, the privacy checkup “allows people to tailor their personal settings and control who sees their profile information, how much of it is seen and by who, and which apps and websites are connected to Facebook through their profile”.
“It’s normal to worry about who can see the things you share on social media, but not everyone knows what they can do about it.” says Gareth Lambe, Head of Facebook Ireland.
“That’s why we have made customising your privacy settings on Facebook quick and easy. At our pop up cafés you can get help and advice on how to change your privacy settings – all in the time it takes to make a cup of coffee.”
The Facebook Café will pop up in SOMA on Thursday, October 24th (8am – 4pm).
