Are you one of Facebook estimated 5 billion users? If so, then the way people can access information about you has just changed with the introduction of ‘Graph Search’.

According to ABC 7 reporter Jonathan Bloom Graph Search

‘can help you find new friends, new businesses, but as many Facebook users are just finding out. It can help other people find things about you that you thought were private’

Although you may think you have locked your content to be accessible by ‘only friends’ Graph Search can provide other users with an alarming amount of information about you and particularly photos you have commented on, liked and photos your friends have commented on.

If you are unsure how this affects you we suggest you have a look at this document from Childnet.com.

If you still have concerns please comment on this blog or contact a member of the Curriculum Innovation Service 01274 385844.
