Facebook birthday settings 2018
When you sign up for a Facebook personal account you have to enter your date of birth. This leads to concerns around who
can see that date of birth, how it's displayed. I'm going to show you in this short video how you can take control of that. Here we go.
So where do you go to find your birthday settings. Well assuming you've logged into Facebook you need to then click on your picture and this brings you through to your main profile setup area and what you need to be clicking on is the About section.
Then you just scroll down a little bit and you're looking for this part which is "contact and basic info". Click on there
There's other details you can input but there you go. Basic information - date of birth and year of birth. So importantly you have options to show and restrict who can see your
date of birth to various groups of people So here you can see it's selected for your friends only so all of my friends can currently see the birthday 17th December 1971 which means they will in all likelihood get a notification. Facebook telling them it's Paul's birthday please send him a message.
Now firstly bear in mind this isn't my actual birthday this is another account but also bear in mind you can make changes. So click edit and you can then click on the drop-down to see who's allowed to see this so the most restrictive option is only me and
obviously the most open is public. I wouldn't recommend public, if people aren't your friends you certainly don't want birthday wishes from anybody out there and also it's valuable data that people could potentially gather from your account. So I would suggest actually although you might leave this set this part open the actual day of birth so you get some greetings and well wishes I would certainly look to restrict displaying the year of birth so people can't get your exact age details. So just say only me. When you are ready click Save Changes.
Now if you don't actually want to be notified about all of your friends out there who have a birthday coming up you can take control of that as well. What you need to do is click here on a
drop down go to settings here under notifications click there go to Facebook notifications here click edit and where it says birthdays choose whether you want to get notifications about your birthday. So just turn that to off and that's job done. That should be automatically updated.
So that's Facebook birthday settings here in 2018. I'm Paul from PRWilson media your social media personal trainer. Do check out the rest of my video collection here on YouTube.
