Facebook Privacy News


Facebook announced a number of new features today, but the one we think is the most important for privacy is a new “dashboard for apps” that helps manage the data applications may be accessing. Users will be able to see what types of data were last accessed by each app and can deny access to non-essential data. With these new controls, apps that grab more than they need leave an “audit trail” that may encourage users to cut them off.  Excellent step forward – and something other platforms should take a good look at!
