New Privacy Features Offered by Facebook

LUX Facebook Fans!

You’ll soon have the freedom to customize your settings at every level. Through a new personalized platform, Facebook is offering you the ability to decide what you’d like to share with your audience. No longer will you be subject to the controls of default programming. This is FAB-ulous news for all those who would prefer to have the option to influence who sees what information. Since it’s your information in the first place, right?

“Facebook is transforming the world's ability to control its information online by empowering more than 350 million people to personalize the audience for each piece of content they share,” said Elliot Schrage, Vice President of Communications, Public Policy and Marketing in their press release. “We've always designed Facebook to enable people to control what information they share with whom—it's the reason our service continues to attract such a broad and diverse group of users from around the world. We're proud of the latest evolution we're announcing today and we will continue to innovate to serve users' changing needs.”

The tools just launched this week and you can expect a new request when you sign in asking you to update your ‘privacy settings.’

This new update has come off of the demand of the global user base requesting control over the individual pieces of content. So with this new ‘Publisher Privacy Control’ you can do just that. You can easily select a specific setting for each post at the same time you create it by using the drop-down menu prior to posting the item. This will allow you to share what you want with whom you want!

Plus these new settings have been revamped to be much more intuitive than previously. By simplifying this process, their hope is that it’ll allow you to utilize your networks in a much more effective manner.

So LUX Nation, what do you think of these new Facebook features? Do you like the idea of being able to control your content in real time? We look forward to hearing from you.
