Facebook Change Gives Users More Privacy Controls

Wednesday, 09 December 2009 09:21 AM

NEW YORK -- Facebook is giving users better control over who sees information on their personal pages.

The online social network is launching new privacy settings Wednesday that are designed to simplify the cumbersome controls that have confounded many users.

Users will be able to select a privacy setting for each piece of content, such as photos or updates, that they share on the site. The choices are "friends" only, "friends of friends" or "everyone."

All users will be asked to review their settings.

The site is also getting rid of its geographic networks, because many of them _ take "New York" or "Australia" _ have gotten too big.
