Facebook makes changes to its social platform so often it can make our heads spin so many of us just wait to see the obvious ones and most of the time are unaware of the smaller, more quiet changes that still affect you.
Keeping up with all the changes Facebook makes seems hard and reading a bunch of articles takes up too much of your time so you need a simpler solution to remain informed about the social networking site that you not only enjoy but spend so much of your time on.
There are two ways to keep informed (besides Facebook Help) that you can check periodically to see if any changes have happened that you may have missed. More often than not, any changes made to Facebook that will impact your privacy or the way you communicate using this particular platform is what seems to be the most concerning.
Although you still need to keep in mind that Privacy is starting to fade further as you leave more of a digital imprint. Not to mention that the word “privacy” is not going to uphold to what we would consider it to mean offline. Now with that in mind, knowing your capabilities and remaining informed is what truly matters so you can make a decision of how you want to use Facebook.
The two places you need to check on Facebook to remain informed of any crucial Facebook changes are:
Accounts Settings – Here you will be able to evoke or enable access to outside apps, change or add to your general information, increase or decrease your security, address your privacy concerns, ads, payments and gifts.
Everything you would like to do on Facebook can be seen from this setting which is located at the top right corner of Facebook. Many of us are already aware of this setting, but not as many use this to help keep you updated with seeing the changes as they will be more obvious the more you check.
Facebook Edit Page Button – A drop down will appear on your Facebook Page once clicking on the Edit Page button and here is where you can go through your info, manage permissions, manage notifications, see scheduled posts and history of posts under activity log, banned users and yet another spot for you to be able to switch from your profile as your page when interacting on Facebook.
These two areas are easily provided to users on Facebook but are not used as often as they should be. Checking these two areas frequently is a sure fire way to keep constantly in the loop, help you notice changes that may have occurred and for you to remain as much in control as you can over your Facebook settings so you can easily see if any changes have occurred on Facebook.
