Facebook officially releases new privacy tools

Facebook has officially rolled out the new privacy management features for the users of the social network

SIMPLE PRIVACY. Facebook officially rolls out new controls to make privacy management easier for users.

MANILA, Philippines – An easier way to manage one’s Facebook privacy should now be available for users of the social network.

On Thursday, December 20, the Facebook newsroom blog updated an earlier post regarding the implementation of their content management controls, which Rappler reported on.

CONTACT PRIVILEGES. The updated Facebook page will feature a means to modify who can contact you or gain access to your information.

As the updated post mentions, “Today’s updates include Privacy Shortcuts, an easier-to-use Activity Log, and a new Request and Removal tool for managing multiple photos you’re tagged in.”

The privacy shortcuts allow users to choose who can access their content, as well as control who talks to them and deny unwanted accounts access to your profile as necessary.

The activity log, on the other hand, lets users know what they’ve been doing on Facebook, allowing them to modify permissions for the readership of an action they’ve made, while the Request and Removal tool lets users manage photos more readily. – Rappler.com
