Facebook To Simplify Privacy Settings


Facebook has made plans for another update to their privacy settings, simplifying the options with new shortcuts and easier access to an activity log. The social network says they will help users adjust to the changes with tips "such as in-context reminders about how stuff you hide from timeline may still appear in news feed, search, and other places."

The changes will go live before the new year and they say simple new options will include dropdown menus like "Who can see my stuff?"; "Who can contact me?" and "How do I stop someone from bothering me?"

"Soon you'll start to see these requests happen separately, so you have more control over what you share," Facebook said. "For example, a person can grant a music app the ability to read their public profile and friends list to personalize their experience in the app, but decline to allow it to post what they listen to to Facebook on their behalf."
