Well, technically that is true. Two of them will help you examine and adjust your Facebook privacy settings, while the third will help you delete your Facebook account or any other account on over 500 different sites.
For many of us, adjusting our Facebook privacy has been hit or miss. For me personally, I always wondered whether the changes that I had made were really effective. There didn’t seem to be any good way of knowing if what I had changed made a difference. The only way that I could verify most changes was to simply wait and see how things worked out.
This is where the first web site comes into play. It asks you for permission to access your Facebook account so that it can analyze the information that Facebook makes available to the apps that you use. The amount and type of information that Facebook supplies to apps is based on the settings that you utilize in the Privacy settings area of your personal profile.
If you go to http://www.rabidgremlin.com/fbprivacy/ and login to Facebook using the login button the process will get started. Once you grant it access it examines the info that Facebook provides and gives you a score and some color coded graphics so that you can know where you might have an issue. According to the site, it does not download or store any information about you, so you can feel ok about using it. And as they also say, if you have concerns, you can always delete it from your list of apps in Facebook once you are done with it.
Which leads us to the next web site. Finding where to adjust your Facebook privacy shouldn’t be too much of an effort (look for the downward facing triangle just to the right of the word “Home” on the right side of the blue bar at the top of the page and click it. Then click on “Privacy Settings”) but in case you have trouble with those instructions, just visit: http://www.adjustyourprivacy.com. There you will find links to the privacy settings page for Facebook and eleven other popular sites. Just click on the icon for the site that you want and you will be taken directly to that site’s privacy settings page. In addition, you can also use the site to run checks on what 14 other websites know about you. After adjusting your Facebook Privacy settings, go ahead and check your work by using the fbprivacy tool mentioned above. You can keep going back an forth until you get exactly what you want.
Finally, you may want to just delete an account altogether. For some web sites this is extremely difficult to do, so the folks behind our next site have listed information on how to cancel/delete an account on over 500 sites. Go here to kill unwanted accounts: http://www.accountkiller.com. Be sure to click on the “All Sites (501)” tab to see all of the different sites that they have listed.
A few minutes spent using these tools should give you some peace of mind about what you are sharing on Facebook, and if you are ready to throw in the towel, you can always just delete your account!
