• Location sharing.
• New language related to sharing.
• A breakdown of the “Everyone” setting.
• Information on controlling the data being shared with third parties.
In addition to giving users more control over each setting, Facebook is also implementing a tool that assists users in learning more about protecting their private information. The “Learn More” link located inside the Transition Tool leads users to the new and improved Privacy Center where they can read about Facebook’s principles of user control and related features.
New users are given opportunities to learn Facebook inside and out through its New User Guide which speaks heavily about privacy and includes a link to the Privacy Center. Minors who use the site and select “Everyone” as a profile setting will be visible to his or her “Friends,” “Friends of Friends,” and to the school and work networks that he or she has joined. This protects youth from predators that are sometimes associated with social media networking.
