    Facebook to simplify privacy settings Wednesday

    One day after Facebook's CEO admitted that the company had made mistakes with users' privacy, the social networking site confirmed it will roll out new, simplified privacy controls on Wednesday.

    Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes said today that the new privacy tools are designed to make it easier for users to specify who can see their information, as well as whether Facebook can share the information with other Web sites.

    Noyes wouldn't give any specifics on the tools being unveiled.

    In a column published Monday in the Washington Post, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company has made mistakes in its continuing push to further enable social connections, and that Facebook hoped to soon introduce new, easier-to-use privacy settings to help users make sure their personal information isn't shared with third-party Web sites.

    Good to see they are taking privacy seriously.. but I don't really give a rats ass if they change it or not.. privacy is not a big concern for me.

    not of concern to you just yet, but you haven't had your identity stolen and bank accounts cleaned out!

    it's just sad that for a friendly social network, there are retards who try to hurt/stalk/kill other people... i guess we are niave to think Digital Worlds would be different to real worlds.

    Now my bank account is a different story. As for facebook I don't want to be stalked, hunted or killed by using it. That'd be awful.
