New privacy controls from Facebook

13 Dec 2012 07:02
Facebook has started rolling out new privacy controls that will make it easier for users to ask friends to remove objectionable pictures. The software will be rolled out next week.
Facebook privacy "kit" updates include shortcuts to controls, a simple-to-use log of what a user has been sharing and tools for managing pictures "tagged" with their names.

"Our goal is to make sure people understand the ways they can control their information," Facebook chief privacy officer Erin Egan told AFP while providing an early look at the changes.

"We want people to make the choices that are right for them," he added.

Facebook last year introduced "in-context controls" that call attention to privacy settings at moments when members are posting comments or pictures.

The shortcuts were meant to build on the strategy of putting privacy controls in easy reach at relevant moments during activities at the social network, according to Egan.
