Facebook said on Wednesday that it will overhaul its privacy settings tools to put users "more in control" of their information on the social media website. But the company hopes its 2.2 billion users will have an easier time navigating its complex and often confusing privacy and security settings. Instead of having settings spread across almost 20 different screens, they're now accessible from a single place.
Facebook is making additional changes to its platform.
"While [data-broker integration] is common industry practice, we believe this step, winding down over the next six months, will help improve people's privacy on Facebook", said a corporate blog post attributed by the company to Graham Mudd, Facebook's director of monetization product marketing.
"Facebook recognises it's clearly lost people's trust and it needs to get to work on regaining that", Stephen Deadman, its global deputy chief privacy officer told me. Access Your Information will also let you download your data, store it wherever you please, and move it to other services, when available. Facebook says it is also adding "clearer explanations" about how its privacy controls work. And in the future, Facebook intends to notify all users of apps that have been removed for misusing data.
Manage who sees your posts and profile information: You own what you share on Facebook, and you can manage things like who sees your posts and the information you choose to include on your profile.
