Facebook Revamps Privacy Settings Again

Susan Hall

Facebook's privacy policy continues to evolve. With legions of companies chomping at the bit to get to that trove of data on consumers, it's no wonder. The new policy allows people to set their privacy settings so that the whole world can see a particular post, photo or video -- or they can make it available only to family, for instance, reports Reuters.


According to AFP, all users will be required to set their privacy settings. It quotes Elliot Schrage, Facebook vice president of global communications, marketing and public policy, saing:

We care so much about this that we will require people to go through it to get access to the service. ... The idea is to evolve, to give users better control of with whom they share when they share.

The company says that its policy about what it shares with third parties will not change.
