Facebook and New Privacy Controls
Facebook’s Announcement on Privacy Controls
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sent out a general ‘open letter’ to all Facebook members on December 1 that it had reached a record number of users (350 million people & organizations). He also outlined the revised and simplified privacy controls.
The current announcement by Facebook’s CEO states:
The plan we’ve come up with is to remove regional networks completely and create a simpler model for privacy control where you can set content to be available to only your friends, friends of your friends, or everyone.
We’re adding something that many of you have asked for — the ability to control who sees each individual piece of content you create or upload. In addition, we’ll also be fulfilling a request made by many of you to make the privacy settings page simpler by combining some settings. If you want to read more about this, we began discussing this plan back in July.
I personally will look forward to how the new changes will work, specifically the ability to control individual pieces of content that has been created or uploaded to Facebook. Hopefully, things will be as easy as they claim to be.
