If you tend to be protective of your privacy and you comment on social media pages quite often, then it’s best to be diligent with your friend request settings. You’d be surprised who you might bump into in the Facebook world. All you have to do is go to the right hand menu of your account to click on Settings. From there you’ll be able to click on the Privacy tab and manage your preferred settings accordingly. Here’s what it will look like when you get there.
