From the Switch:
Facebook on Wednesday sought to make it simpler for people to control how their data is used….In the coming months, privacy controls that are now in 20 places on Facebook’s app will be merged into a single page, and will include what the company says will be easier-to-comprehend features that explain how the company is using a person’s data, the company announced. Facebook also will create a page that makes it easier for people to download their data so that they can more clearly view what information the company collects about them.
Twenty places! Can anyone tell me with a straight face that this was all just a big blooper and Facebook is only now realizing that its privacy controls are a wee bit confusing? Seriously?
