Luckily, you’re not defenseless. With a few small setting adjustments, you can take back control and make sure you share only what you want with the world.
One key thing to remember before we proceed though: The Internet is forever. Once you have posted something online, it does not belong to you anymore. If you’ve shared a photo or status update with anyone, it’s possible that they could screenshot it and share it with the world. So when in doubt, don’t post it.
