New Facebook Privacy Settings Rolled Out To Users



New privacy and sharing settings will be distributed to Facebook users by the end of the year.

A Facebook release has said that: “We continue to strive toward three main goals: bringing controls in context where you share, helping you understand what appears where as you use Facebook, and providing tools to help you act on content you don't like.”

The sharing platform has released a preview of some of the new options that can be seen in the menu.
Privacy settings could previously be found under different menu paths but will soon all be organised into one place called Privacy Shortcuts.


A new looking Activity Log will let users see more information on their personal data, their photos and all sorts of details regarding their Facebook activity.

Updated Activity Log

A Request Removal Tool has been put into place so that users can ask for photos they disapprove of to be taken down by the person who uploaded them.

If a user should choose to hide something from their Timeline, Facebook will notify them if the content may still be shown in news feeds, searches, or anywhere else on the site.

Hidden Education

Also, Facebook apps will have to make two separate requests to gain access to your personal information and post it to your Facebook account.

All users should be seeing these changes by the end of 2012.

What do you think about the privacy updates? Have you had any issues before?
