CLEVELAND, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SecureState, a management consulting firm specializing in information security, has identified several privacy concerns regarding the update of Facebook's Graph Search. In the next several weeks, Facebook will begin rolling changes in the way users search for information through the platform, starting with those who have their language set to U.S. English.


Anything you have ever posted publicly, "liked," or were tagged in can easily be searched when this feature is enabled on your profile. Additionally, other information that you have posted in your profile, such as your hometown, relationship status, and employer now becomes searchable.

Tom Eston, SecureState's Profiling and Penetration Manager, clearly explains how users can protect their information in his latest blog post.
