Best PracticesPut your biography on your websiteHave a detailed LinkedIn profile A personal website with your name as a domain never hurts

Facebook Privacy SettingsFacebook Business Pages is part of our Social Media best practices. Your clients and tutors may want to be your friend on a personal basis as well. Options include: Accepting their request, and putting them on an Acquaintance list. Create a second profile (against Facebook T&C but a common practice).Encouraging them to like your Facebook business page


Facebook Acquaintance List1. Click on Friends.2. Click on a friend that you are not as close to and click on Add to a List.3. Add them to a list called Acquaintancesyou can then restrict the type of content that they see.4. Click on Privacy, then Who Can See My Stuff.5. Make the default for future posts Friends Except Acquaintances.6. Then you can remember to only display your updates to that list, and if you have an update that is less personal, you can post it to all friends.7. Go to your Photo Albums.8. Click on privacy settings for each one, and for more personal albums, make the audience Friends Except Acquaintances. Facebook usually defaults profile photos to be public. If you have more personal ones, you have to go through each one and tag it appropriately. Personally, I keep one or two as public in case someone I know is looking for me.9. To make profile photos more private, click on Edit; then you can see the Audience Selector tool there.10. Even though this does not 100% guarantee that everything that you want to be private remains private, this is a definite step in the right direction.
