Facebook-Why Does Your Account Appear On Google

I was asked the other day “Why when I search for my Facebook account does mine and a lot of my friends appear on Google “

Well its in the settings in Facebook that people rarely check that gives permission for your profile to appear. So you can turn it off.

First go to your settings and open up privacy

Then check the settings in “How People Can Find And Contact You

Look for the search engine reference and turn it off.
