Facebook after slapped by Google+ live jumping users announced a major revamp to its privacy settings to give users easier and more precise control over who views their posts, photos and other contents.
The changes are due to be rolled out to all users in the coming days. As the search giant promotes its Google+ service as a way for users to better control the online groups they frequent, Facebook is also making a “proactive and global effort” to streamline how members manage their personal information.
The aim is to provide users with a better idea of who can see what they are posting and what parts of their profile are visible to their friends and to the broader Web. In the past, the popular social networking site has been criticised for its poor privacy settings.
