What information is public?
Information you share is always public, unless and subject to what is listed below, you limit visibility to certain groups only, such as private (visible only to you) or friends: some of the information you give us when you fill in your profile is always public, such as your age, language and country. We also use a part of your profile, called your public profile, to help connect you with friends and family. Your public profile includes your name, gender, username, age/date of birth, country, profile picture and cover photo. You can hide some information from being made public in your global profile settings but you cannot hide your country, age, and gender on your satellite profiles. Some of the ways that this helps us are:
- Your name, profile picture and cover photo help people recognise you.
- Gender helps us describe you (e.g. “Add her as a friend”).
- Listing your networks (e.g. school, workplace) allows others to find you more easily.
- Username is the URL of your profile.
- Age range helps provide you with age-appropriate content.
- Language and country help us provide appropriate content and experiences.
