Have Facebook finally sorted out their privacy issues?

Facebook and their commitment to privacy

Facebook have today agreed to tighten their privacy controls as part of a settlement with US regulators over abuse of user data.

This all started back in 2009 when Facebook changed settings to make public details users may have deemed private. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has admitted that the company had made a “bunch of mistakes”.

The Federal Trade Commimssion said Facebook, which has 800 million users, had agreed to get consumers’ approval before changing the way it shares their data.

Hopefully this will renew confidence among the Facebook user population that their information will not be shared beyond the privacy settings that they have established.
