You may have your settings set to private but that does not mean your likes, comments or shares remain that way once you take action on another person’s Facebook profile or shared content. Facebook has made it this way and you are not able to change it unless you specifically ask friends to change the setting located under the settings area when someone hovers over your profile picture within a newsfeed.

Here are the 4 steps needed for your friends to help protect your privacy when liking their content on Facebook.

1. Hover over profile picture in newsfeed without clicking

2. Without clicking hover over “Friends”

3. Click on “Settings”

4. Unclick “Likes and Comments”

Once this is completed your activity will no longer show publicly on their profile helping you stay a little more in control of who sees what you are doing on Facebook in the fight for your right to privacy.
