Public outcry has built since reports in The New York Times and The Observer that Cambridge Analytica improperly received data on tens of millions of Facebook userswho downloaded an unrelated psychology app, and data on those users' friends, without their consent. The company announced today a "top to bottom" redesign that will bring together 20 separate menu pages into a single centralized system.
"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", the Facebook execs say.
The new privacy shortcut menu will also allow people to make their account more secure, control personal information, control ads, and manage who sees the user's posts and profile information. Now Facebook has said they had permission from users to gather such information and claim it's in "opt-in feature" and they only use it to improve Facebook and don't look at or share the data.
Facebook Inc has adjusted privacy settings to give users more control over their information in a few taps, it said on Wednesday (March 28), after an outcry over a whistleblower's allegations that members' data was used to sway the 2016 U.S. election.
"Zuck promised easier, better privacy controls "in the coming weeks" eight years ago", said Zeynep Tufekci, a University of North Carolina professor who studies social media, in a comment on Twitter.
The company says the changes will be rolled out in the coming weeks and will involve condensing all the various security menus - that are now spread out over 20 different screens - into one easy to manage tab on the Facebook menu. "If any such downstream entity misused data from Facebook, what is the protection available to the data subject?", said one of the queries in the notice.
Chris Cox, Facebook's chief product officer, called the new settings "the first of many steps" the company is taking to address privacy concerns.
Tools to make protecting accounts easier were also introduced.
"The recent news about Facebook's alleged mismanagement of users' data has solidified our decision to suspend our activity on the platform at this time", said a statement from Playboy. It requires companies to give people a "right to portability" - to take their data with them - and imposes fines of up to 4 per cent of global revenue for companies breaking the law.
