In the past, Facebook has taken a lot of heat over its privacy policies. The social network has tried to respond to this criticism by seeking user feedback over these policies. And now, it has finally made some minor changes based upon this feedback.
For long, Facebook users have been concerned about their online data as well as the visibility of their activities online. For instance, if a person Likes something on Facebook, he also wants to know exactly who is able to see this activity.
Another major concern cited by the users was that whether or not Facebook sells users’ photos to other companies. Facebook has clearly stated that this is never the case. Moreover, Egan goes on to explain Facebook’s photo-tagging philosophy, “By using your profile picture for tag suggest, we can improve our ability to suggest that people tag you in a photo giving you a heads up that the photo has been posted and the ability to take action. Again, this is about increasing your control and awareness of information about you.”
