Facebook Adds More Mobile Privacy Control

Facebook Mobile Privacy

 

Facebook plans on rolling out more privacy management features to users who access the social network via their mobile devices.

According to a blog post by Rose Yao, a mobile product manager at Facebook, mobile users will now be able to view details about the information they’ve shared with different applications and websites.

They will also be able to adjust their settings when they’re on the go. The Applications and Websites section of one’s privacy settings will contain a full list of the applications being used, and Facebook users will also be able to see when these applications last accessed their information.

In addition, it will be possible to tweak other settings, including access to one’s basic profile information, photos and videos, and friends’ information. To look at privacy controls on a mobile device, users should visit m.facebook.com/privacy, or they can visit the Settings page and click on the “change” link next to “Privacy Settings.”

The new mobile privacy options are an extension of the applications dashboard Facebook introduced in October, providing users with information about the the applications they’ve authorized and the data those apps use. They will be rolling out to users soon.
