4 Facebook privacy settings for the New Year

Kristin Burnham | Jan. 7, 2013
Facebook's privacy settings are a pain point for many users: From the chaos it's caused after a privacy breach to the confusing settings after the launch of Timeline in 2011, securing your data and understanding who can see which parts of your profile have never been easy.

You can also choose to remove the app. Note that while you remove the app from your account--and can choose whether to delete all of the app's activity on Facebook--it may still have the data you shared with it, which you can determine by reading the app's privacy policy.

4. How to Set Your Facebook Notifications

Facebook's Notification Center is where you view and change what actions you're notified about on Facebook and how you're notified of them. Find this by navigating to your Privacy Settings page and clicking "Notifications" from the left side.

For example, you can choose to be notified on Facebook and via text message every time someone tags you in a photo. Or, you can choose to be notified via a weekly email digest about important friend activity you may have missed.

There are a number of settings and options on this page; browse through all of them to ensure you're seeing what you want to see and are being notified only about important activity.
