Facebook Announces New Privacy Features

Leave a Comment

Facebook has announced new privacy feature  with a theme “simple control”. CEO Mark Zuckerberg — who penned an op-ed in The Washington Post on Sunday promising new privacy options — is doing the presenting.

In a blog post Mark Zuckerberg wrote, “Today we're starting to roll out some changes that will make all of these controls a lot simpler. We've focused on three things: a single control for your content, more powerful controls for your basic information and an easy control to turn off all applications”.

Simple Controls

Facebook isn’t going to remove the dozens of privacy controls that let you customize settings for very specific elements of your profile. However, the company is rolling out:

  1. One simple control for changing content viewing permissions to friends-only, friends-of-friends, or everyone — it applies to everything you’ve published on Facebook in the past. This setting will also apply to everything you publish in the future.
  2. A simple way for determining how people can find you on Facebook, and what users that aren’t your friend can see.
  3. A simple way for turning off the Facebook Platform, specifically, being able to opt-out of Facebook’s new instant personalization features and providing third-party sites with information.facebook simple control privacy settings
