New Facebook Privacy Shortcuts Make Profile Settings Simpler

Last week, Facebook announced that it would be updating profile privacy settings for all users by the end of the year. Users will start seeing these changes in the next 24 hours.

At approximately 3am GMT a small lock will appear in the top right hand corner of the Facebook page. When clicked on, the lock symbol will open into a top-down menu, with the following shortcuts as options: Who Can See My Stuff, Who Can Contact Me, and How Do I Stop Someone From Bothering Me.

The changes are intended to make applying your profile privacy settings easier and quicker.

“We believe that the better you understand who can see the things you share,” says product manager Samuel Lessin on the Facebook Newsroom, “the better your experience on Facebook can be.”

The update has also affected photo tagging. A new dialogue box appears when a user untags a photo, asking for a reason for the untagging.
