Facebook has been under fire for the last two weeks concerning user’s privacy and data collection. With the community in an uproar and stock prices falling, Facebook definitely has gotten the message loud and clear. So in addition to Mark Zuckerberg’s announcement to strengthen their policies and make it easier for people to revoke apps from accessing your data, additional measures are being implemented for the users to take charge of their on privacy.

Here’s a list of what is being done:

  • Easier to Find Data Settings and Privacy Tools
    • A full redesign of the settings menu on mobile devices into one place.
    • Cleaned up the outdated settings.
  • New Privacy Shortcuts Menu
    • New menu for easier access and clearer explanations of how the controls work.
    • Can add more layers of protection, such as two-factor authentication.
    • Controlling your personal information by  reviewing what you’ve shared and delete it if you want. This will also include posts you’ve reacted to, friend request and your searches.
    • Controlling what ads you are shown, by managing the information Facebook uses to show you the ads.
    • Manage who gets to see your posts and profile information, including what information you choose to include on your profile.
  • Tools to find, download and delete your Facebook data
    • Introducing “Access Your Information”, where you can access, manage and download a secure copy of the data you shared with Facebook. Which means your posts, reactions comments, and your searches.
  • The Road Ahead
    • Facebook is taking responsibility to inform their users on how they collect and use users’ data.
    • New updates to Facebook’s terms of service, including their commitments to people.
    • Facebook will also update their data policy to be more transparent about their process, not about gaining new rights to collect, use or share data.
