WRAL 5 On Your Side

Think of all of the people you connect and re-connect with on Facebook. Your "friends."

Did you know anything they do on their page, could impact you?

The quizzes, articles or trivia that they click on could put all of YOUR Facebook information out there!

I didn't know that until I started looking into this story..

A lot of people I know take the quizzes. I have too.

And I wondered, what's the harm? Is there any risk?

Turns out there is: to your privacy!

I thought I had pretty secure settings, until I learned about other things I needed to do.

And many people I've talked with didn't know about this.

Tuesday at 5, I'll show you the specific changes you can make to your account to lock down your profile, your pictures, your posts, your likes – no matter what your friends do!

Tune in to 5 On Your Side, Tuesday at 5!
