Washington Post: After weeks of criticism about changes to its privacy settings, Facebook is responding and making some changes to its policies. In an op-ed piece, CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the company will add simpler privacy controls and an easy way to turn off all third-party services.
He also promised that the social networking site will continue to operate on the following principles:
- "You have control over how your information is shared.
- We do not share your personal information with people or services you don't want.
- We do not give advertisers access to your personal information.
- We do not and never will sell any of your information to anyone.
- We will always keep Facebook a free service for everyone."
