The most up-to-date guide on using Facebook safely is out!
The UK Safer Internet Centre have recently updated one of their most popular resources – the Facebook checklist. Originally based on the resource created by the Austrian Safer Internet Centre, they have produced a number of versions over the last couple of years and distributed hundreds of thousands hard copies to children’s organisations. Working very closely with the Safety team at Facebook UK, the UK Safer Internet Centre always strive to keep this resource as up-to-date as possible, so the February 2015 version is the most current resource you will find on using Facebook safely. What’s more, the Facebook checklist helps you understand and manage the information you share online with others.
This latest version includes information on how you can use the new Facebook Privacy Checkup Dinosaur, as well as how to use the reporting tools on the platform.
The UK Safer Internet Centre have also included a section on the new Privacy Basics tool which helps you take control over the ads that you see by checking and changing your preferences, and there is information on how you can remove or block an app or game, or adjust the privacy settings.
They have kept the Teenage user updates and a list of useful sources of help and information.
You can find & download a pdf version of the Facebook checklist in the Advice and Resources area of the UK Safer Internet Centre website. You can also order hard copies (max of 500 per order) from the online store. They are free to order, with only postage charged.
