Erin Egan, Facebook's chief privacy officer, told the BBC: "We don't want our users to be surprised. We want everyone to understand how they can control their information and have the best experience. It is part of our goal to be better, we constantly want to improve."

The three key elements to the changes are:

  • Privacy shortcuts - a new icon on the toolbar will allow users to access it from whatever page they are on and asks three key questions - who can see my stuff?, who can contact me?, and how do I stop someone from bothering me?
  • In-product education - this means that when you post something Facebook will explain where it appears - reminding users that while a post may be hidden from their own timeline it will still appear in search, news feeds and other places on Facebook.
  • Request and removal tool - allows users to go to a tab and select multiple photos and untag them on their page. They can also send a direct message to the person who tagged them asking them to remove the tags and explaining why they do not want their photo posted.

    It is great move by Facebook. It is very important for all social media users to improve their privacy settings. Leading social networking websites like Facebook, Google are always improving their systems to provide excellence security to users. But many of social networking website users does not take seriously this tactics until they got harmed by any hackers.

    Thanks for sharing useful information with us.
