Facebook's default privacy settings are not for everyone – especially minors & vulnerable adults – which is why Facebook allows users to customize their settings.

The Connect Safely chart shows recommendations for most teens.

Note: not all teens have the same level of maturity; the chart could be reviewed with learners to help them make informed decisions in setting the right privacy settings for them.

Note: For more on Facebook safety and privacy for teens, Connect Safely have produced a booklet - A Parents' Guide to Facebook - that I included in the emagazine in 2010; visit http://www.connectsafely.org/fbparents.pdf to access the booklet.
