Sharing your pictures with friends on Facebook is convenient! It’s also really convenient for creepers you hardly know to peer at your body and digitally stalk you. And with Facebook’s privacy settings being as confusing as they are, you need something better. You need McAfee’s Social Protection app.
It’s potentially a very useful tool for people who are slightly paranoid or just don’t want their mug all over the internet. The way McAfee Social Protection works is that it allows you to pick and choose which specific Facebook friends can see your photo. Drunk, naked and sprawled across the street? Let’s only show that to your two best friends. Working hard while on holidays? Let’s give your boss access. For the people you don’t allow to see your pictures, it shows a blurry thumbnail instead and they have no way to access the photo.
McAfee even goes as far as to block your friends from downloading the pictures. McAfee says there is no way to save, download or even use a screen capture tool to grab your picture (it’ll only record a blank space), so you don’t have to worry about it being uploaded onto the internet by someone else. McAfee’s Social Protection Facebook app is supposed to become available at the end of the month. Facebook stalkers, your move. [McAfee Social Protection via PC World, Read Write Web]
