Chapter 22. Managing Your Facebook Account

We end our tour of Facebook for grown-ups by looking at all the settings in your Facebook account. We covered Facebook’s privacy settings in the previous chapter, and that’s a lot of the settings you can configure. But there’s more, and you probably need to know how to edit them. After all, you need to let Facebook know if things change in your life.

Changing Account Settings

Your Facebook account contains your basic personal information—your name, email address, password, and the like. What do you do if you change your name after a divorce (or remarriage), get a new email account, or find that your password is compromised? Fortunately, Facebook lets you easily change all of these items.
