Let’s start by checking your default post sharing settings.

If you are accessing Facebook through your browser go to Settings > Privacy > Your Activity > Who can see future posts. We recommend setting your default to Friends or Friends except… which is the same setting with exceptions you can manually add in case you don’t want some friends to be able to see your posts. When set to Public, all your posts can be seen by anyone on or off Facebook.

You can also set who you want to be able to see your friend list, or search your profile through your e-mail or phone number. We recommend keeping these two to yourself.

If you are using the Facebook App go to Menu > Settings & Privacy > Settings > Privacy Settings > Who can see your future posts?
