NEW YORK (CBS) ― Facebook’s vice president of product privacy Chris Cox announced that starting Wednesday, May 26, Facebook will be launching “drastically simplified” and improved privacy controls. Cox made the announcement at TechCrunch Disrupt, a start-up event in New York City.
Cox suggested that these new changes would help alleviate some of the recent privacy problems Facebook has faced.
In a blog post, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company “missed the mark” and “made a bunch of mistakes.” He also has said they are working on a “simpler way to control your information.”
CNet.com’s Caroline McCarthy posted a lengthy list of what she characterized as “Facebook’s Follies,” outlining the social networking giant’s “notorious and not-so-notorious misfires over the years.”
