OpSec vs Facebook, round 1

This is a quick summary of things you need to remember when creating/configuring your account

Consider usi…use a burn email address that is only used to receive Facebook notifications and to use if you forget your password.
Name: You can’t use Batman on Facebook (take my word for it) but you can use something that does not disclose your real name OR at least hide yourself from the web/public search and/or limit who can search for you on Facebook.
DOB: Does Facebook really need to know what your date of birth is? If they are going to send you a birthday gift, well…you get the idea, change it to something else (and write it down!)
Address, location, etc: Your friends know where you live, does the world or your other friends need to know.
Phone Number: really, is Facebook going to call you?
Search: limit the search to your friends or friends of friends, don’t allow people to search for you by email address.
