jennifer jolly: i'm doing really, really well. thank you so much for having me. speaker 1: well, we are so glad to have you today. i know when we think of spring, we think of maybe cleaning our houses and getting all the grime out of the house, but with social media being so big, it's really important to get a jump on cleaning out your social media. how do you go about doing that? jennifer jolly: well, considering that most of us spend more than five years of our lives scanning social media, it is critical to do some serious spring cleaning of our social media outlets and our online homes. starting with facebook, the most popular, also most scrutinized social media outlet on the planet right now due to that data leak by cambridge analytica and ensuing controversy. as a result, facebook has rolled out a string of new privacy and anti- abuse measures. ultimately, they are good for us, but can be really confusing, especially if you've never touched your facebook settings before. i always say the number one way to get started, just like cleaning your house, is to just clear out enough clutter so that you can actually see what you're working with. for me, i went through and i ditched a lot of old pages and groups that were important to me a decade ago, but are not anymore. get rid of that dead weight. i also spent time reviewing my friends list and deciding whether my friends spark joy, all marie kondo like, in either my online or real world. if the answer was an immediate no or even a mild meh, i either unfollowed, hid, snoozed, or went all the way and unfriended them. to do this for yourself, you click on the little button, that's those three little dots in the top right of any post on your newsfeed, and select any one of those options. just remember, you can undo that part anytime. speaker 1: okay. really nice. definitely some great tips there because i know you can accrue friends over a long list of time and maybe lose touch. what's the next step once we've cleared out the clutter? jennifer jolly: well, the next step is to get really serious. get in there and do a deep clean, starting with a sweep of your security settings so that you can find out what you've shared and then delete, change, update, and/or just manage it all. to do this yourself, on a desktop, go into your security settings. click the question mark in the upper right-hand corner. go down to privacy shortcuts. from there, you can follow the list. customize everything you want to, including who can see your stuff, who can contact you, and more. you can then go back and choose privacy checkup. scroll down to apps. review third-party apps that you've used facebook to log in to. when i did that, there were more than 300 of them. some of them don't even exist anymore, so delete all those that you don't want. make sure that you have them locked down. i have mine so that only me, only i can see what i share with those apps. number three is about your ad preferences. this really helps you manage ads that you see on facebook. you click the arrow in the upper right- hand corner. click ads on the left side menu. that takes you to your ad preferences. from there, you can really take control of your information and ad settings. it is truly up to you what pops up in your feed from here on out. speaker 1: certainly important to make sure you know what's going on with your social media, especially with this day and age. you can do this with other sites as well. as far as instagram and twitter, similar processes there. jennifer jolly: absolutely. one of the things that this facebook controversy did for me it was make me go back and check my twitter settings, my instagram settings, my linkedin, youtube, all of that. it's really important that you have an understanding of what you're sharing with the world. also, you want to think, "when was the last time i changed my profile photo? is it an outdated photo of you from the 80s?" i mean, you have to go through and you have to update those profile pictures. you have to make sure that it really represents the best of you because, ultimately, social media is about connecting. it's a two-way exchange of ideas. it's your best face forward to the world. whether it's for potential employers, family members, potential spouses, you want to just make sure that what you're putting out there into the world is like your home. it's clean, it's decluttered, and it really is a meaningful place for you to make connections. speaker 1: great. well, thank you so much for all of your help and your tips today. do you have anywhere for maybe folks to go for more information? jennifer jolly: yeah. everything i talked about today, every single thing you want to go in and do right now with facebook, it's on my website at techish, t-e-c-h-i-s-h, dot com. speaker 1: well, thank you so much again. i really loved having you on this show today. jennifer jolly: thank you so much for having me. speaker 1: all right, folks. well, make sure you're staying tuned. we'll be back after the
