Hide Yo’ Kids, Hide Yo’ Contact Info on Facebook

Real Facebook Stalkers are NOT cool and this dude took Facebook stalking too far. This post is meant as a warning to protect yourself from the creeptastic Facebook Stalkers out there.

Depending on your privacy settings, your Facebook friends, their friends or even people in your network have access to some or all of your information. In September, a 20 year old man in New Jersey was arrested for terrorizing juveniles and women using information gleaned from their Facebook accounts. According to the article, he threatened his victims lives. The young man utilized several fake Facebook accounts, emails and cell phone numbers to contact his victims.

Don’t put your personal contact info for the public to see and you can hopefully avoid the super creeptastic stalkers out there. Here are resources from Facebook to help secure your information.
