The last month or so has been quite frustrating for Facebook users due to privacy and security confusion, so much so that many of our readers decided to delete their Facebook account to eliminate the risk, we are now hearing Facebook CEO admits privacy-related mistakes.
Apparently as of tomorrow Facebook will roll out simplified privacy controls, this should ensure that users accounts are more secure, which should in-turn restrict hackers from exploiting the popular social networking site so easily.
No specific details have been confirmed, however Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg seems dedicated to ensure that their social network will be more secure against third-party websites, which can benefit from gaining private information.
In a recent statement from Zuckerberg he confirmed a lot of this by saying “In the coming weeks, we will add privacy controls that are much simpler to use. We will also give you an easy way to turn off all third-party services. We are working hard to make these changes available as soon as possible”.
It will be interesting to see what changes are made to Facebook tomorrow, when I log into my Facebook account tomorrow I will check the apparently simplified privacy settings, and post about them, check out the site tomorrow for this.
