facebookIf you use Facebook, but worry about it sharing your personal details with strangers, we have a fix. It’s Facebook’s “Privacy Checkup.”

From your computer, go to and click the picture of a padlock next to the picture of a globe. Follow the steps to increase or decrease your privacy. For instance, you might not want anyone else to see how you use various Facebook apps. Change the “public” setting to “only me.”¬†¬†Remove the apps you’re no longer using. Change the information on your profile page and remove the year of your birth if it’s listed. (It’s easier to do identity theft if the bad guys know the year you were born.)
