Facebook changes privacy tools

#1
Quote:Amid mounting criticism that it is betraying the trust of its users, the world's largest social networking site Facebook today overhauled its privacy controls under which the amount of information that is always visible to others will be reduced.

In an hour-long news conference at its Palo Alto headquarters in California, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg outlined "a pretty big overhaul" and billed it as a dramatically simpler way for people to control who sees information they post on the online social networking service.

"The number one thing we've heard is that there just needs to be a simpler way to control your information. We've always offered a lot of controls, but if you find them too hard to use then you won't feel like you have control. Unless you feel in control, then you won't be comfortable sharing and our service will be less useful for you. We agree we need to improve this," he wrote on his blog.

Facebook unveiled a redesigned privacy settings page to provide a single control for content and "significantly reduce" the amount of information that is always visible to everyone.
