- LifeHacker highlights the stupid things you do on Facebook, and how to fix them. The main article has LOTS of great points (including don’t friend everybody!) but I want to highlight the ones they list at the END of the article:
- You're not using HTTPS.
- You're friending people from the office.
- You're oversharing.
- Your password is insecure.
- You let Facebook track you.

- Let’s talk LinkedIn. It kind of flies under the radar, and so we (I) don’t give it the critical glance, but it has its own quirky UI problems. A few questions from a listener:
· I hate that the entire world gets an email with any edit I make. Never my intention. Is there a way to do so without it sending a “So in so made an update to their Linkedin acct…”?
· When I am trying to send an invite sometimes it is difficult or am I slow?
· Edits sometimes seem cumbersome.
