There are moments that each person needs an amount of privacy. This is applicable to online privacy and also to MySpace profile. The next section will talk about several privacy options with your free MySpace account and on how to apply these certain features.
You must be logged into your own MySpace account first in order to modify the privacy option of you profile and to make sure that all features will be available for you. Do this by choosing “Sign In” from www.myspace.com or check your MySpace profile then click “Home” at the top the page. This will bring you to MySpace log in page and let you have a full access of your account and you can now have a look at possible privacy options for you.
You will notice a list of links on the right side of the profile picture of your MySpace home page.
These links include:
• edit profile
• account settings
• add/edit photos
• add/change videos
• manage blog
There are more links also. Click the link that says “Account Settings” to check your privacy options. You will be directed to a page where there will be more choices including explore/change your privacy settings.
While looking around your MySpace settings, you will notice a part marked “privacy setting”.
You must see a red colored linked next to it that says “Change Settings”, you may need to click this link.
You are now set to explore and change your MySpace privacy settings. You will find the things needed for you to change your privacy settings. Selections include:
• require email address or last name in order for other members to make an add friend request
• require approval before other members' comments post on your profile
• check to hide your online status from other users.
• block users who are not added to my friends
• set your profile to private
Setting your profile to private is one of the most used privacy option used in MySpace. This means nobody can check you profile without your approval. Since other members won’t be able to view your profile, you may have less add friend request as a result.
