Advocates Pleased with Facebook Changes
SOCIAL NETWORKINGOctober 12, 2010
Privacy advocates are voicing approval of Facebook's new privacy features, which will allow users greater control over their personal data, OUT-LAW.com reports. The changes include a "dashboard," which will display to users which applications are active and the data they collect. The Electronic Frontier Foundation welcomed the change, the report states. "We think that this is an important step forward in terms of providing more transparency to users about where their Facebook data is going and who is using it." Additional features will allow users to export all of their uploaded data from the site and create private groups for communications.
