Facebook intros changes on Profile Settings - Tips & Tricks - nairrk - 08-25-2011

San Francisco: In an effort to offer better security settings to users, world's largest social networking site Facebook has announced introduction of new security features.

Facebook said the new improvements will make it easier to share posts, photos, tags and other content. With the new changes, Facebook users can control the most criticized 'tagging' feature, which allows their friends to tag them in photos.
"You have told us that 'who can see this?' could be clearer across Facebook, so we have made changes to make this more visual and straightforward," Facebook's vice president of product Christopher Cox said in a post.

"The main change is moving most of your controls from a settings page to being inline, right next to the posts, photos and tags they affect."

Facebook said that they focused on two areas - What shows up on users profile and What happens when user share something new.

Changes on Profile:

The profile is getting some new tools that give you clearer, more consistent controls over how photos and posts get added to it, and who can see everything that lives there.

* Inline Profile Controls

Content on your profile, from your hometown to your latest photo album, will appear next to an icon and a drop-down menu. This inline menu lets you know who can see this part of your profile, and you can change it with one click.

* Profile Tag Review

You can choose to use the new tool to approve or reject any photo or post you are tagged in before it's visible to anyone else on your profile.

* Content Tag Review

You have the option to review and approve or reject any tag someone tries to add to your photos and posts.

* View Profile As…

This tool is now on the top of your profile where it's easier to access. Earlier the tool was behind the scenes.
