Facebook trying to make privacy controls 'easier to find and understand'
In a bid to turn the world's largest social network into a more discreet place, Facebook has now planned to make its privacy controls easier to find and understand.
The change will include a "privacy shortcuts" section that appears 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 can get answers to common questions such as "Who can see my stuff?" and "How do I stop someone from bothering me?"
According to News24, other updates will include a tool that enables individuals to review all the publicly available pictures identifying them on Facebook and suggestions on how to request that an embarrassing or unflattering photograph be removed
Facebook also plans to plant a privacy education page at the top of its users' news feeds within the next month or so to help them better manage their online identities, the report said.
According to the report, the changes announced on Wednesday will include several revisions that will start rolling out to Facebook's over one billion users during the next few weeks and continue into early next year.
