I don’t know about you but I still find all this talk about privacy and security settings quite confusing. Depending on how you use your social networks, for games, friendship, sharing content, community building or even sales and marketing, you need to set your privacy settings accordingly.

For me, this means multiple projects, work and personal need to be set up differently. Who owns your content?, how is it protected?, who can see it?, and what can you do to stay informed and protect your information and online reputation? All these questions need answers and often the answers change frequently. We need to be on top of these questions and seek out the answers regularly.

I’m a real fan of visual information and graphic facilitation. I found this infographic on my online research travels and thought it might be useful to you all. This year we plan to bring you many more infographics. Click the image to view a larger version.
