Various parts of people’s Facebook pages could be holding very embarrassing information about them — and have been tucked away, hiding in plain sight.
Sections such as “Favourite Quotes”, which were once high-profile on the site, have been gradually moving to various unnoticed parts of it. And that means that they might act as a strange time capsule — holding a version of you from years ago that you haven’t updated.
There are a number of sections on Facebook . But Favourite Quotes is perhaps one of the most potentially embarrassing — given it was once a large part of the site but isn’t any more.
To see the Quotes About You section, head to your own profile and choose the “About” tab.
There, select “Favourite Quotes” and have a look through what’s written there.
Some of those fields used to be highly prominent on Facebook, and so you may once have carefully curated them. But as Facebook has been redesigned they have been moved away and gradually shunted out of sight — but not completely.
