Soon after Mark Zuckerberg announced new simplified privacy control of Facebook, the company again faced complaints about its privacy features. Ana Yang Muller share "some more details about what you can expect and the updated resources launched to help you understand privacy on Facebook. The new controls are launching gradually, and many of you mayn't see them on your privacy settings page yet. We want to make sure you know when the new controls are available to you, you'll be notified with an announcement on your homepage (see pic below)," writes Ana.

Here's a recap of simplified settings: Reduced number of settings required to make all information private from nearly 50 to less than 15 — Introduced presets that cover 18 individual settings for sharing with one single control—two clicks to control what had been more than 100 different options — Consolidated 10 settings on three separate pages into seven settings on one page — Reduced number of separate pages in privacy settings from 13 to eight.
