Facebook just announced some big, new changes to its platform. Facebook’s newest update comes after Cambridge Analytica plundered the data of millions of Facebook users. The new Facebook privacy settings should make users feel safer sharing information about themselves with the social network, as well as give users more control over what exactly they share.
Security Settings Easier To Find
Facebook has redesigned their entire settings menu on mobile devices. You can access all the settings from a single place. It provides a clear indication what information can and can’t be shared with other apps.
A Privacy Shortcuts Menu
The new Privacy Shortcuts Menu is where you can control your data in just a few taps. The experience is now clearer, more visual, and easy-to-find.
- You can add more layers of protection to your account
- You can review what you’ve shared and delete your history if you want to
- You can control the ads you see
- You can manage who sees your posts and the information you choose to include on your profile
Full Control Of Your Facebook Data
Facebook has introduced a new feature Access Your Information – a secure way for people to access and manage their information, such as posts, reactions, comments, and things you’ve searched for. You can go here to delete anything from your timeline or profile that you no longer want on Facebook. You can also download all the data you’ve shared on Facebook.
This seems pretty legit and safe to us. Facebook is committed to improving the way users interact with the platform in the future.
