FaceBook Privacy Controls

If you’re a FaceBook user, you may have recently heard about a concern for people’s privacy on their FaceBook accounts.

FaceBook has recently released improved privacy controls on their website, as well as a privacy guide, which provides users with information about how FaceBook’s new privacy controls work.

Also, on FaceBook’s blog, CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted about the new features that were added to FaceBook’s privacy controls.

When you go to your privacy settings page, you will be able to see what your current privacy settings are, as well as change them to one of four different privacy options, including “Everyone”, “Friends of Friends”, “Friends Only”, “Recommended”, and “Custom”.

On the privacy settings page, you can also find links to pages where you can edit your directory information, application and website settings, and block lists.

Also, if you are a minor, FaceBook’s privacy settings work differently than they would if you were an adult. If you are a minor and set your privacy settings to “Everyone”, only their “Friends”, “Friends of Friends”, and people in any verified networks they are a part of are able to see their information. However, there are exceptions to this, such as “Search for me on FaceBook” and “Send me friend requests”, which will be set to “Everyone” if they have their privacy settings set to “Everyone”.

If you would like to view or change your FaceBook account’s privacy settings, you can do so by going to FaceBook.com/privacy.
