You can't hide on Facebook

Various sources are reporting that starting today the following Facebook privacy policy changes will begin to take effect.

1. It will be easier for you to pick which of your friends or subscribers can view your personal info, status updates and photos.
2. It will be simpler to request a photo of you, posted by someone else, be taken down.
3. It will be more clear where your personal data is going via the activity log.
4. Apps must now ask for permission to see your personal info and the ability to post on your behalf separately.
5. You will no longer be able to hide your profile from other users searching for your name.

These are some fairly big changes that Facebook is making here. It seems every time Facebook makes a change a large amount of users are left upset and it seems like today is no different. But do you need to be upset? Is it so bad to have your profile appear in a search? This is a great chance to reevaluate your personal brand and examine how you are perceived in the online world.

Personal Branding

People are going to find your online profiles. This is a fact and as soon as we accept this we can begin to take advantage of it. Social Media sites like Facebook allow for unique opportunity; we can control what people see by being selective about what we post. By controlling what people see we can can greatly influence what people think and influence their opinions in a positive way so we may benefit from the online relationship in very real world ways.

Start to use your Facebook account to share positive stories and accomplishments in your life. Share in your friends positive accomplishments. Avoid complaining or engaging in political debates. Take a “Vegas” philosophy when deciding to post and share photos from social gatherings. What happens at (x) stays at (x). Remember that photos may be missing some critical context and someone may assume something that simply is not true.
