How to protect your Facebook privacy – or delete yourself completely
(Or how to check what 3rd party apps are connected to your account?)

“If you found the Cambridge Analytica data breach revelations deeply unsettling, read our guide to the maze of your privacy settings” - from Alex Hern via The Guardian Click here for the how-to article. I did go into the app section of mine last week and deleted a number of those. I need to dig a little deeper and think about the rest. Good to know: once you delete your account, it takes 90 days for Facebook to delete all of your data from the site.

Thank you Swissmiss & Seth Godin
