    How do you check privacy settings? Ever since I read your post I've been messing around in yahoo and can't figure out how to check settings let alone edit them.

    Be gentle please, use simple words and directions...I am seriously technology challenged. :D

    (I did figure out a while back how to keep myself invisible!)

    i had to hunt + peck, too, hun - :rolleyes: took me 20-bloody-minutes to find the merchandising link, GRRRRrrr...

    on-line social networks are not interested in making *privacy* E-Z -
    they want to make selling to U and selling Ur data E-Z! :mad:

    i still avoid Facebook like the plague - it takes almost 34 pages to fully secure Ur data. :thumbdown:

    glad it worked for U, hun -

    I'm with you on Facebook. I hate it. I keep an account only because it's the best way for me to keep up with my nieces and nephews (all teens now) and two of my sisters, but I hardly ever go in.

    I never accept friend requests from anyone, even people I know in real life.
