Reasons Why You Must Prevent Facebook From Sharing Your Personal Data
There are reasons why you should privatize your Facebook account and they are:
When wrong people come across your profile and can see your work history and even your picture, it may not go down so try not to display that vital information.
If your data can be seen by the public your Facebook account can easily be hacked, especially when your password is mixed up with your personal information, except you have done your Two-step verification
It is important to also protect your Facebook friend because they might hack their Facebook account and scam you or hack your and scam your friends.
