Every now and then, Facebook greets its users with a series of new privacy and settings updates. The latest one that took action starting from mid-July, aimed at giving users more control over the data that can be shared and accessed by Facebook.
Privacy concerns are hot among social media users. With a lot of news about leaks and privacy violations, Facebook has become socially and legally responsible for protecting the private data of millions of users.
The new updates give Facebook users control over the amount of data that can be accessed by third parties and by Facebook itself. Determining the type of ads shown and controlling third-party applications will help users secure their private information. While a lot of people might feel overwhelmed by the number of changes and updates, the whole issue still remains to be a major safety concern. Facebook is determined to keep on providing free services and doesn’t aim to make money by sharing the information of users. Nevertheless, people have to be wise enough to select the kind of data they choose to share online.
