At Facebook, we are constantly developing new experiences and features to help you control your information. Some of our recent work includes simplified privacy settings and publisher privacy controls that let you select your audience every time you post something on Facebook. We plan a lot more innovations in the months ahead so check back from time to time.
- First, it should be easy to understand, even when the concepts are complicated, or it is of no use to anyone.
- Second, it should be visual and interactive, because that's the way people use the web today.
- And third, it should focus on the questions people who use Facebook are most likely to ask, because that makes it relevant.
These principles are based on feedback we’ve received from thousands of people and from our ongoing conversations with privacy experts, policy makers and regulators from around the world.
Finally, we’ve tried not to change the substance of the policy but, in our effort to simplify, we have added some new things that were elsewhere on the site (like our help center) and have made some other concepts clearer. You can see some comparison visuals here and an overview of the concepts here.
There is still a lot of work to do, and we want your feedback to tell us if we’re on the right track and how we might make it even better. Please leave your questions and suggestions in the comments field below.
