During AAMC’s last Nursing Grand Rounds, How to Make Social Media Your BFF, we learned how to use social media safely and professionally. Since then, a question that has come up frequently is this: “I don’t want just anyone to be able to see what I post online. How do I manage my privacy settings?”

Managing privacy settings can be confusing, but whether you use an e-commerce site like Amazon or Ebay, mobile/location services, photo or video sharing sites, social media, or even a search engine like Google, you have the ability to control who see’s (or tracks) what you are posting.

Take a few minutes to review your privacy settings. Not sure where to find them? This site, www.staysafeonline.org, offers a one- stop shop for easy instructions to update privacy settings wherever and however you go online.
