Facebook privacy demystified (part four) Set up a Group

By Señior Tech from the June 2017 Edition

Another way to protect your privacy on Facebook is to set up a group.

Select the down arrow from the main Facebook menu bar.  Then click “Create Group” on the drop-down menu.

Groups are great for getting things done and staying in touch with just the people you want. Share photos and videos, have conversations, make plans and more.

  1. Name the group, something that is meaningful to you and your
  2. Invite at least one person from your current friend group. Once you have set-up the group, you can invite other friends. In this case, I have selected Manzanillo Sun Test Group.

On another front, the “WannaCry” ransomware attack mainly attacked computers running Windows 7 and older operating systems (OS).

If your computer is running one of these operating    systems, please update your computer immediately. If you are unsure how to update your OS, go to Microsoft.com for information.
