Facebook makes it actually possible to understand its privacy policy

Facebook has a new update to its privacy policies, as well as its terms and conditions for users. This time around, it’s continuing its trend of trying to lessen the impact of these changes by introducing a new Privacy Basics feature that essentially acts as an introductory tutorial to the privacy controls it puts in the hands of users on the site. Privacy Basics includes a FAQ about Facebook’s different privacy features, including blocking and unfriending, as well as post visibility.

Facebook is trying to share more about itself. The world’s largest social network, which has been knocked for failing to be transparent on how it gathers data on its users, said Thursday it is updating its data policy to make it shorter and clearer to understand. It’s also rolling out “Privacy Basics,” a Web page with interactive tips and guides on how to control your information on the site. “Privacy Basics is the latest step we’ve taken to help you make sure you’re sharing with exactly who you want,” the company said Thursday. Facebook is taking comments and suggestions about the changes until Nov. 20. The company plans to provide final updates after that. It uses simple language, as well as bold primary colors and pretty graphic design to take people through their own privacy settings, showing them privacy settings grouped by what they make visible to others, what others can do to interact with them on the site, and what kind of information they’ll see in their feed from both friends and pages, and advertisers.
