In a column on the Washington Post yesterday, Facebook’s CEO and founder Mark Zuckerburg stated that Facebook has “heard the feedback. There needs to be a simpler way to control your information. In the coming weeks, we will add privacy controls that are much simpler to use.”
Along with that, Zuckerburg said, “We will also give you an easy way to turn off all third-party services. We are working hard to make these changes available as soon as possible.”
These changes are welcome, and should help with many people’s privacy concerns. Most of the problems stem from advertising, third-party websites. This announcement does not mention default settings however, and here’s hoping they’ll announce changes to that very soon.
