Just because you are looking for a job, doesn’t mean you need to never post on Facebook again.
Here’s are some simple steps to get you started.
1. How do others see you on Facebook?
As with anything to do with managing your online reputation, the first step is to find out exactly how others see you already and securing your facebook profile is no different.
To find out how others see your profile, sign in and go to your profile page and click the lock icon.
Click on Who can see my stuff and then View As
This tool lets you see what your timeline looks like to the public or a specific friend.
Step 2. What security settings should you use on Facebook?
By setting it here, you change who can see all of your post but you can also choose to specify the audience on individual posts so if there are certain posts you are happy for everyone to see (eg the fact you just completed an triathalon which can actually enhance your online reputation.)
