"We're also inviting people to take our Privacy Checkup and sharing privacy tips in education campaigns off Facebook, including ads on other websites", Erin Egan, Facebook's chief privacy officer, wrote in a blog post.
Today (29 January), the company took the major step of publishing its privacy principles, giving the average user an insight into how their information is handled.
According to Sandberg, the changes give Facebook "a very good foundation to meet all the requirements" of the 28-member bloc's new data rules called the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR, which apply to any company that keeps data on European Union citizens.
Facebook will also be hosting a series of data protection workshops for small and medium sized businesses focusing on GDPR and will continue to host Design Jams to help designers and other professionals bake data protection into their products.
"We recognize that people use Facebook to connect, but not everyone wants to share everything with everyone - including with us", the company explained in its blog post. The new videos will appear in the News Feed in the near future.

Many believe that the announcement made by Facebook is a sign that large tech companies are getting ready for this new Law. "But privacy controls are only powerful if you know how to find and use them".
GDPR is already shaking up the internet, and having major consequences for the whole world - not just countries in the EU. We now get a new privacy center where you will be able to access all your core privacy settings.
The GDPR rules apply both to European companies and to American companies who collect the data of European residents. Closer to home, the company has come under heightened scrutiny over its handling of Russian disinformation campaigns that ran on the social media platform before and after the 2016 presidential election. On Sunday, the tech giant announced that it has published its privacy principles for the first time since its inception.
