Happy Holidays from Meredith!

I would like to wish everyone a fantastic and joyous holiday season! With the New Year around the corner businesses are looking to social media to promote specials and new products and some of us will even consider “cleaning up” our Facebook and Twitter pages! (You know you thought about it)

Here are a few recommendations from me, to you, before the year ends…

1. Brush up on your settings : Login to your Facebook personal page. Click on Account Settings and on the left hand side, you will see a list of sections such as Security and Applications. Click on Applications and scroll through all of the apps that you have allowed over your time on Facebook. Some of these applications may be dormant so just delete them easily by clicking on Edit, and Remove.

Also go into your Privacy Settings. Check out what you currently have set for all sharing and tagging. You can easily navigate around these pages. Make sure you are posting to only those you want to actually see your posts!

2. Lists : Lists can now be formed in Facebook, Twitter, on LinkedIn they exist as “tags” and on Google+ they exist as “Circles”. By using these organizational options you can further understand and control all of your connections! Yes, it takes a lot of time and effort but trust me, it is worth it at the end of the day. I especially recommend this for Facebook because you can now control exactly whom you post to based on what “list” you choose.

3. Friends you want to eliminate “but in a nice way” – Yes you can stop dealing with annoying people without hurting their feelings on Facebook. It will take some effort but there is a starting point. I will most likely post another article on this subject because it is a broad path to venture down. Ok, so fortunately now, Facebook has a plethora of options for you to choose from when it come to friends. When you are looking at your newsfeed, hover over the right upper corner of a certain post to find a, arrow pointing down. Click on the arrow to expose a list of options for this “friend”. By clicking “Unsubscribe” you then remove all posts and activity from that “friend”, showing up in your newsfeed! Badda Bing…and the best part is…they will never find out. I know this sounds harsh but we all know there is that one person you wish you didn’t have to hear from each time you log in.

Again! Happy Holidays from MOCmedia and a Happy New Year!
