How Are Your Photo Privacy Settings on Facebook?

Profile photo of Ann Submitted by Ann May 21, 2013 Website :

It wasn’t until I found out that I was expecting my first child towards the end of 2012 that I really started looking at how photos get shared on Facebook. Looking at what my friends and family do was really interesting and it got me thinking about what I will do when the baby is born and whether I would share my photos across my Facebook network.

Earlier this month, Facebook announced their Q1 earnings and engagement statistics. It is reported that Facebook now have 665 million daily active users and 1.1 billion monthly active users. Active mobile users now stand at 751 million, which was a huge jump compared to Q4 2012 which had 680 million users.

Now, those numbers are very significant and they are continuing to rise, meaning that Facebook is easily dominating the social media world.

As good as this is for Facebook, it also brings a lot of potential dangers and threats as the number of users continues to increase. Over the years working in this industry, there have been countless times when Facebook has been under scrutiny for issues with their security settings, sometimes meaning that once private updates and photos may have been accessible by the public community…

    Hi Samantha, you are right with the fundamental flaws in Facebook photo sharing features. You are not the only one that is frustrated with these privacy issues.

    Hopefully, the management will do something about it soonest as the platform continues to lead in social media sharing!

    Hi Samantha,

    It is no longer news that Facebook is having a lot of privacy setting issues. While it has attempted to curtail the trend, more still needs to be done.

    On the alternative photo sharing platforms, I have never thought of using any other ( possibly because I never do a lot of sharing with Facebook). However, it is a good thing to have alternatives so that users can choose the one that best serve their sharing interests( even privacy).

    I have filled out the survey, and hoping to read your findings in future post!

    Interesting facts have been revealed about the use of the Facebook privacy settings. It is obvious that this setting is not complete as friends of friends can still access pictures meant for only friends.

    Well, for many who are not aware of these issues, I guess this is the right time to reassess how they use Facebook. The good thing is that there are other options to be explored.

    The issue of privacy is often that of most important concern to most people engaging in social media. This becomes prevalent with Facebook because this is the leading social networking platform.

    The concerns raised in this post is not new but since it reemphasized, it becomes imperative for these issues to taken more seriously. Luckily, we can consider the alternatives discussed in this post to see if they have better secured privacy settings.

    Frankly, there are flaws in the Facebook’s photo privacy settings. Anyone who desires better security can actually consider going for alternative platforms – perhaps until Facebook seems it fit to rectify these flaws.

    DropShots, 7Moments, and 23Snaps are viable photo sharing platform options with enhanced privacy settings.
