If you've had Facebook for a while, you've probably built a large post archive. What used to be considered "beautiful" to publish may now seem inappropriate. It's not just our friends and family who can check out these old posts. Employers actively review social media profiles before hiring.
While you should certainly increase your Facebook privacy settings to avoid this, you may want to consider a more drastic approach.
One way to protect yourself is to bulk delete all Facebook posts on your profile, permanently removing them from view. If you want to delete all your Facebook posts, here's what you need to do.
