Mark Zuckerberg is delivering, speaking to the press at a conference in the company's Palo Alto offices. The new privacy controls feature an at-a-glance look at what you're sharing, and a way to turn off all applications. Your block lists are easier to find, too.

"First, we've built one simple control to set who can see content you post. Second, we've reduced amount of basic information that must be visible to everyone and we're removing connections privacy model. And giving you ability to control who can see your friends and pages. These fields will no longer have to be public. Third, we've made it simple to control whether apps and websites can access any of your information. This make sure that none of your information is shared with apps or websites. Finally and perhaps most importantly, I am pleased to say that with these changes the overhaul of Facebook's privacy model is complete. If you find these changes helpful, then we plan to keep this privacy framework for a long time. That means you won't need to worry about changes. (Believe me, we're probably happier about this than you're.)," said Mark.
