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.
"We believe in privacy. We believe in giving people control," said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. "But more and more, people want to share information. As long as they have good control over that, I think that's where the world is going."
