Facebook Stops Playing Hide-And-Seek With Its Privacy Settings

In a 2009 interview with United Kingdom broadcaster BBC News, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated that Facebook would never sell user data.

Facebook also said it was working to improve transparency around how it used data.

Facebook on Wednesday unveiled new privacy settings aiming to give its users more control over how their data is shared, following an outcry over hijacking of personal information at the giant social network.

Today Facebook announced it will be making it easier to find the tools to secure your account and is adding a way to delete your data.

Offer on Pixel 2 XL
Seemingly caused by the Android 8.1 update, this bug causes the phone to subject itself to potentially risky charging states. In addition to this, buying a Pixel 2 or 2 XL by March 31 will also make you eligible to get a free 18W USB-C power adapter.

Now, instead of having the settings spread across 20 different pages, Facebook has now condensed them all to a single page. But can you really trust Facebook with the same information given its numerous transgressions when it comes to user privacy?

Facebook's data handling practices are coming under new scrutiny amid reports that users are discovering videos they recorded on the platform but never posted to the site.

The suit says Facebook is in violation of the Fair Housing Act, which makes it illegal to publish housing ads that indicate preferences or limitations based on race colour, religion, handicaps, familial status or national origin.

National investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen demonstrated on TODAY Wednesday how to download all the information Facebook has gathered on you, as the company deals with an ongoing backlash over data breaches and privacy issues. USA consumer protection agency, the Federal Trade Commission, on Monday confirmed it had opened an investigation into whether Facebook mishandled private data or violated a 2011 agreement, which settled an earlier probe.

According to a new blog post in its Newsroom, Facebook has made it easier for users to find privacy settings, control what they share, and delete their data. It's also separated settings into security, personal information, ads you see, and management of who sees your posts and profile information.

Facebook has produced multiple iterations to its privacy settings pages over the years, often in response to criticism that the system is too complicated for most people to understand what they are and aren't sharing. Facebook apparently still plans to launch them later this year, though they may undergo some changes first.

Users would be able to download the data shared with Facebook, including uploaded photos, contacts added to their account, and posts on timelines.

Yesterday, it was confirmed by Facebook that Mark Zuckerberg would not appear before a British parliamentary committee investigating fake news. Under Apps Other Use, you can choose to opt in or out of what data you share.
