I hear this all the time, “I don’t want to use (pick one – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube, etc) because I don’t want someone else to control my content.”
This is one of the biggest fears people have about using social media. There are only three things you can do to be able to both understand how your content is used and control it yourself:
- Read the Privacy Statements
- Read the Terms of Service
- Manage and Adjust your settings
In order to make this easier for you, here are the Privacy Statements of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+
- Facebook Privacy Statement
- LinkedIn Privacy Statement
- Twitter Privacy Statement
- Google+ Privacy Statement
Here are the Terms of Service Statements for Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+
- Facebook Terms of Service
- LinkedIn Terms of Service
- Twitter Terms of Service
- Google+ Terms of Service
In order to manage your Social Media Content on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+ work, you will need to review your settings and make decisions for yourself how to adjust these settings. Here are the links to each of these social media platform settings.
