Further Facebook Privacy Tips From Symantec

Symantec : 11 June, 2010  (Technical Article)
Advice on avoiding exploits using the Facebook Group Function released from Symantec to further protect users of the popular social networking site
Symantec has released guidelines on protecting privacy on social networks. This has come about as a result of Symantec recently observing an increase in social engineering activity which exploits the 'groups' function of Facebook.

Symantec advises the following:

* Avoid submitting any personal information whenever possible.
* Most social networking websites now allow applications, groups, etc. to be blocked and/or reported. Use these options to deny any other requests from the unwanted application.
* Make sure you read, understand and set your account and privacy settings. In some instances, by joining certain applications or groups, you automatically allow them to use your personal information unless you set your privacy settings otherwise.
* It is recommended that you protect your computer with a valid and up-to-date security program that can help protect you against malicious activity and warn you about potential online scams.
