Facebook Makes More Than a Dozen Privacy & Tagging Changes

Author:

Facebook made a big announcement today, which includes more than a dozen privacy and tagging changes. They want to “make it easier to share posts, photos, tags and other content with exactly the people you want”. This follows their recent news regarding new mobile security features.

Since the company has been told by users that there needs to be some changes within the privacy features of Facebook, they have made many changes that are more visual and straightforward.

You can choose to use the new tool to approve or reject any photo or post you are tagged in before it's visible to anyone else on your profile.

Here’s a list of the changes on your profile:

  • Inline Profile Controls
  • Profile Tag Review
  • Content Tag Review
  • View Profile As…

The control for who can see each post will be right inline. For each audience, there is now an icon and label to help make it easier to understand and decide who you're sharing with. Also, when you tag someone, the audience label will automatically update to show that the person tagged and their friends can see the post.

Here’s a list of the changes when you share:

  • Inline controls
  • Word Change: “Everyone” to “Public”
  • Change Your Mind After You Post?
  • Tag Who You’re With, or What You Want to Talk About
  • Tag Locations in Posts
  • Remove Tags or Content from Facebook

You can read about each change in detail on Facebook’s blog post here. Their ultimate goal with all of these changes are that “these new tools make it easier to share with exactly who you want, and that the resulting experience is a lot clearer and a lot more fun”.

With the changes listed above, do you feel your privacy on Facebook is more well protected?
