Facebook and user privacy have become separate ideas in the last few years as Facebook grows ever larger and security grows ever less useful. Fortunately today millions of Facebook users got the good news that some new security and privacy controls are finally being given to Facebook users. Thousands of Facebook users rejoiced publicly on Facebook today after the good news broke.
The Facebook security features announced today are not as restrictive as some people would have hoped but nearly everyone is happy to have gained at least a little control. The controls will finally give users control over who sees what which should help make it significantly easier for users to cut down on privacy loss. Analysts around the world agree that it was about time for Facebook to roll out some new privacy features and that is exactly what they are finally beginning to do.
The great news about a new security feature broke, as expected, on Facebook’s official blog. This announcement is welcome news for all Facebook users and not only are Facebook users getting more control over what is distributed; they are also getting easier control. The announced security controls are expected to be significantly easier to use than the current system which means users will in fact be able to actually control what they want to be available. At this time Facebook is rolling out the security features but not everyone will have access to them quite yet so be patient.
