Facebook Inc. is planning to introduce “drastically simplified” tools for privacy controls Wednesday, a move aimed at easing concerns about how the site handles user information, according to Bloomberg News.

“The last few weeks have been extremely humbling,” Chris Cox, vice president of product at Facebook, said during a technology conference in New York today.

Users are complaining that Facebook makes it too easy for outsiders to access their personal information. People want easier, simpler ways to opt out of sharing data with applications and websites, said Facebook, the world’s most popular for social-networking site.

The company plans to discuss the changes at an event in Palo Alto, California, at 1:30 p.m. EST, Bloomberg reported.
