Reduce Your Risk on Facebook

Microsoft researcher Danah Boyd explores some unusual ways to reduce risk on Facebook at her blog Apophenia. For example, some Facebook users deactivate their account whenever they log out. This doesn’t delete any friends or settings, and when you login and reactive, everything is just as you left it. But it does eliminate “pesky” wall postings and inappropriate photos that might be left while you are not online to moderate them.
