  • Exactly! They would be able to see EVERYTHING you post unless you change your settings. No way I'd have some stranger at the police department on my page LOL! Not that I'm hiding anything, but still.

  • I will repost my comment here from yesterday because I think people do need to be aware of what information might be accessible to VPD by "friending" them. I'm sure VPD have the best intentions but one should always be aware of all potentials.

    From yesterday:

    "I think it's great for the VPD to have a Facebook prescence - if done correctly:

    VPD have not created a business account but have used a personal account - hence being able to "friend" them rather than "like" them - this difference might concern some because, depending on your own security settings, the VPD will be allowed to see anything you make public on your own FB profile.

    To see the difference take a look at Houston PD's FB profile and notice the "like" button instead of the "Add as friend" button:
