SOCIAL NETWORKINGMay 21, 2010
MySpace has announced it has created simplified privacy settings for user information, the New Zealand Herald reports. The new controls include giving users the option of selecting one privacy setting for all their information as well as choosing whether to make their profile public to friends only, to all users over the age of 18 or to everyone. MySpace users also have the ability to block the sharing of their information with other Web sites or third-party applications, the report states. In disclosing the company's new policies, MySpace Co-President Mike Jones said, "While we've had these plans in the works for some time, given the recent outcry over privacy concerns in the media, we felt it was important to unveil those plans to our users now."
