Amid Backlash, Facebook Unveils Simpler Privacy Controls

Thursday May 27th 2010 by Staff

New controls make it easier for users to limit who can see their personal information and to opt out of sharing information with third-party sites.

Computerworld: After months of mounting criticism, Facebook has rolled out new privacy controls to its hundreds of millions of users. The simplified settings make it easier to control who can see a user's personal information and list of friends. Users can also more easily prevent their data from being shared with third party sites.
