Urgent Facebook Safety Tip that You need to Know Now!!!!!

Reblogger Ann Allen Hoover
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage South

I've been wondering how to make sure that Facebook doesn't tell everyone where I am.  Thanks to Larry Bettag for passing along how to disable this function!

Facebook launched

Facebook Places

Anyone can find out where you are when you are logged in.

It gives the actual address & map location of where you are as you use Facebook!! Make sure your kids know. TO UNDO: go to "Account", "Account Settings", "Notifications", then scroll ...down to "Places" and uncheck the 2 boxes.... Make sure to SAVE changes and re-post this.

THIS IS AS MUCH ABOUT SAFETY AS ABOUT ANYTHING!

I don't know why Facebook ever thought this was a good idea...."Ann Allen is at the Starbucks and won't be home for over an hour so feel free to break into her home before 8pm" if I want someone to know where I am I'll tell them right? thanks for the post and keeping us safe
