Facebook continues to take steps to ensure that “I didn’t know” is no longer an excuse when it comes to users and the privacy controls that are available to them.
- How the social network uses data from partners to show more relevant advertising to users.
- Political, religious and relationship information people have chosen to include on their profiles.
- How Facebook uses face recognition, including for features that help protect users’ privacy.
- Updates to the company’s terms of service and data policy, which were announced in April.
Egan explained, “People will see a summary of the choices they’ve already made and won’t see information about features they’ve already disabled or decided not to use. For example, if you’ve already disabled face recognition or ads based on data from partners, we won’t ask you to turn them on. We will reflect the choices they’ve already made on the intro screen.”
