Facebook is a staple of the college life. Most people at college have Facebook profiles and check the website multiple times a day. We all love posting ridiculous pictures of our friends and writing whatever we want on there without thinking about it. The only problem is.. Facebook isn't just for college students anymore. There are a lot of people out there (potential employers!) who might not think so highly of you if they read your profile.
These days, people are actually getting fired from their jobs because of their Facebook profiles! It seems crazy, but it's true. That's why you need to make the most of Facebook's privacy settings ASAP, before its too late.
