Facebook Changes Face of Privacy

Founded in 2004, Facebook’s main goal for the last 5, almost 6, years has been to make the world a more open and connected place for internet users, and we here at Reach Magazine TV think that they’ve done a fantastic job.

One of the newest (and most innovative) things to happen at Facebook has been their recent change to Privacy Protection and Control.

The new update, which was rolled out to the 350 million Facebook users worldwide on Dec. 9, was the first among internet services to offer such control.

You may remember seeing a notification box at the top of your news feed page the last time you logged into your Facebook that asked if you wanted to update your privacy settings or keep them the same.

Well if you decided to update, brand new tools are opened that let any Facebook user decide who, what, and how they send their info to.

Instead of using networks like school, city, etc. they are changing settings to include sending info to Friends, Friends of Friends, Everyone & Customized.

Everytime that you make a post you are now able to select a privacy setting within the post and edit your audience to who you want your information to go out to.

So that means that depending on whether you just found a rotten tomato is lameville, you just posted a photo of you and mom, or you want all your friends to know you’re watching J-LoveSherrie Marlene, and J.O. on Reach Magazine TV, your privacy is directly at your fingertips.

Thanks Facebook!
