Facebook Finally Changes its Privacy Stance

Reckless Getaway - Make a Break For It On Your iPhone

There have been some major changes going on at Facebook this week.  They have come under fire in the past for having complex methods for determining privacy settings.  Some users have found the settings too difficult to get to grips with, meaning their information was often on show to people when they did not want it to be.

It will now be possible to edit your own privacy settings while you are on your profile page.  This is easier than trying to find the old privacy settings page, which many users did not like.  Now, when you look at your content or try to add something to your page, you will be able to edit your privacy settings right there and then.

However, this is not the only change that will occur when the new changes go live on 25th August.  Tagging will also be changed so that you will no longer be tagged by other people unless you want to be.  Instead of new tags appearing without your prior consent, you will now be able to say yes or no to whether you want them to show up or not.  Not only does this aim to be one of the most popular changes to Facebook’s settings, it also gives every user greater control over their account.

It remains to be seen how these changes are received by Facebook users.  Nevertheless, at first glance it looks as though they will be very popular indeed.
