This Month's FAQ – How Can I Find Out What's Being Said About
Question: My reputation is important to me so I'm concerned about the
comments people may be posting that include my name. How can I find out
what's being said about me online?
Answer: Fortunately, there's an easy way to find out. You simply need
to put a Google Alert on your name to keep track of how often people are
talking about you on the Web and what they're saying. This strategy can also
be used by companies or other organizations.
It takes less than a minute to set up a Google Alert. Go to www.google.com/alerts and enter your
name, and variations of your name, with quotation marks around it. Tell
Alerts whether you want all results or just the high quality ones, when you
want them delivered, and how you want them sent to you.

Short Tutorial – How to Tweak Your Facebook News Feed
Have you had enough
of annoying posts in your Facebook News Feed? Are there certain people, or
certain types of posts, that you'd rather not make part of your everyday
routine? You can tweak your News Feed in several different ways by following
the steps below:
Hide Annoying Posts
If you see a post in your News Feed that you'd like to eliminate, click the
arrow in the top right corner of the selected post and choose
Block Content by Type
To block all photos from a specific Friend:
1. Hide his/her post (see above), then hover
your cursor over "Change what updates you get from (NAME)."
2. Deselect "Photos" from the
drop-down list of post types.
See Only Important
If a Friend's constant posts are clogging up your News Feed, navigate to the
menu above and choose "Only important updates." From now on, you'll
only see stories about his/her job, family, or relationship status.
To block all content from a specific Friend, choose "Unfollow" from
the menu above. The Friend won't be notified, but might get suspicious if you
stop commenting or miss an online announcement. For the sake of good
relations, make occasional visits to his/her page and leave a comment.
Make Friends Into Acquaintances
Reclassifying a Friend as an Acquaintance on Facebook means you'll receive
fewer updates and generally only important ones. To access Facebook's
built-in acquaintance tool, hide any story from that Friend, then click
"Organize your News Feed."
