Facebook announces more privacy changes
Fine-tuning for world's largest social network makes it more discreet
Facebook is trying to make its privacy controls easier to find and understand in an effort to turn the world's largest social network into a more discreet place.
The fine-tuning announced Wednesday will include several revisions that will start rolling out to Facebook Inc.'s more than 1 billion users in the next few weeks.
The biggest change will be a new "privacy shortcuts" section that will appear as a tiny lock on the right-hand side at the top of people's news feeds. This feature offers a drop-down box where users will be able to get answers to common questions such as "Who can see my stuff?"
Other updates will include a tool that will enable individuals to review all the publicly available pictures identifying them on Facebook.
