Facebook Privacy Settings Revamped after Scandal

(From BBC News)

Facebook says an overhaul of its privacy tools will make it easier for people to find and edit the personal information the company holds.

They follow intense criticism of the firm after it emerged that data about 50 million users had been harvested and passed on to a political consultancy.

However, Facebook says the revamp was already planned ahead of the scandal in order to comply with new EU rules.

Facebook’s chief privacy officer acknowledged the damage which the Cambridge Analytica revelations had caused her company, at the start of her blog.

“The last week showed how much more work we need to do to enforce our policies, and to help people understand how Facebook works and the choices they have over their data,” wrote Erin Egan.
