Social Media Security Website and Podcast Reloaded!

Since 2009, I’ve been maintaining the popular Facebook Privacy & Security Guide that has been used by several universities and government agencies as well as regular users of Facebook.  If you’re not familiar with my guide, it’s a simple two page handout that walks you through recommended privacy and security settings for your Facebook profile.

The guide has been a labor of love but also required frequent updates since Facebook has drastically changed the privacy controls as well as the layout within the Facebook platform over the years.  Needless to say it’s been tough to keep the guide updated and also tough to keep it to a single page so that it can be easily distributed.  Today, I’m happy to announce that my company SecureState is now officially sponsoring the guide so that it can be maintained with frequent updates!  Having said that, I’m announcing today the release of the fourth version of the Facebook Privacy & Security Guide, updated with the latest information on Facebook’s privacy and security settings.  Please download and distribute to friends and family.

Also around the same time I started the guide, I started the Social Media Security website and podcast.  The podcast is still being recorded monthly and co-hosted by myself and Scott Wright.  Today we also released our 30th episode along with a website redesign for socialmediasecurity.com.  I’d like to thank the podcast’s new sponsor SecureState for the new design and support of the podcast.  Special thanks go to DigiP over at Tick Tock Computers for putting together a great site redesign and logo.  I look forward to recording more podcasts and getting the word out on how to safely use social media!
