The Problem? You're best friends have posted a bunch of pictures showing you dressed as a giant chicken. Now obviously nobody needs to see that so how to do you stop the entire world seeing it, knowing where it was taken and where you got the chicken costume from? Here's how...

Thankfully our friends over at CNET have come up with some simple steps that mean you'll be able to share as many meals whether you're dressed as a giant chicken or not dressed at all, safe in the knowledge that only the right people will see it.
