The advent of facebook is the most popular one in the history of social network. Facebook is one such site that has given the generation a new lookout for interaction. The usage of mobiles has increased too much because of this. There were some sites in the past that had similar settings but none had this kind of acceptance from the public.
The recent changes in facebook have created a new arena. Due to the security issues, facebook has been banned from being used in some offices but still people use it through their mobiles. The pictures that users share on the facebook are not completely protected because there are people who master skills like using the pictures and putting them on the sites that the user might have never thought of. Facebook is used and has been started to build relations, interaction and to contact people and long lost friends but the other side of it is that facebook is a new way of abusing people and torturing people whom you don’t like. There are many teenagers who have used facebook as a medium to show their anger , frustration on someone for example people who are not courageous enough to handle situations face to face and when they can’t tackle situations they use facebook as tool to spoil the image of their enemies.
There is a fact that has been an additional factor to think of the privacy that is, though, the user hides things from the timeline it will be still appearing on the newsfeed, search and other places so there is still a potential problem. If the user doesn’t want to have certain things on the timeline then why does facebook say that still it will be there in other places? So again it is the user who should understand that whatever the site might do, it is internet at the end of the day and whatever people put on the net will definitely be seen by people. So it is unfair to mention in the privacy settings that the user can do certain things but they may be appearing in different places. It will be pointless for people to hide the information in that case.
The profile pictures, the cover photos and some other stuff can’t be hidden on the page. If you are a person who doesn’t want anyone to look at the profile then both you should have cover photo and profile photo a neutral one or you shouldn’t have a profile on facebook at all because these things will be viewed by others. It is also important to know that whatever the user is uploading on the facebook page is not present on the search engine.
The measures that one can take to protect the profile is by blocking the people who are stalking them but this can be done only if there is any action the stalker has taken. By blocking the person from viewing your profile you will not let him or her see any of your activities or pictures or videos etc.
