How to Hide Stuff From Your Timeline

Timeline gives friends the ability to view your entire Facebook history. For this reason, we imagine the first thing most people will want to do is to "sanitize" their Timeline. The good news is, it's simple to hide what you don't want showing. When you see a post you'd like to nix, just hit the pencil icon at the top of the post and select "Hide from Timeline." This doesn't delete the content from your account, but it will keep it safe from prying eyes.

I am active online for the following six reasons: 1) build brand awareness, 2) engage potential customers, 3) build my network before I need it, 4) listen to others, 5) share my ideas and 6) to demonstrate expertise in my niche.

This week's Social Media Connection is Chris Curtis, a web business expert, business radio personality and author of the upcoming book Work the Web! The Webwise Guide to Business Online. In her own words, Curtis shares how she uses social media to achieve her business objectives: When it comes to Social Media, I've carved out my own little corners where I can post until my heart's content (or until my brain can't think of anything to type), and connect with people all over the world. As a business owner, its proven to be a successful way to reach out to others and pitch ideas, form collaborations and even find new contacts for my seminars and workshops. You'll be amazed by the people you meet, and you'll most likely find opportunities in places you never thought of. One note of caution: Be careful what you put in writing. When you're connected for business purposes, don't say anything that you wouldn't say to a prospective client or a business partner. Remember, you're exposing your writing to thousands - even millions - of people who might take exception to interpersonal expressions, if they're thinking about connecting with you to do business. Think before you post. Not sure where to start? Here's where I hang out...
