Facebook Changes Privacy Policy To Comply With Data Protection

Posted May 11, 2012

Last year a group of European college students had raised a question about what Facebook does with all of the words, pictures, and clicks that they track from their 901 million users. ?We?re adding more examples and detailed explanations to help you understand our policies,? stated Facebook chief privacy officer Erin Egan. Egan is also hosting a video Q&A on May 14th.

Below is a portion from a blog post that Egan wrote on the Facebook Blog:

This week we?ve also made all of these terms and policies more accessible by launching our Facebook Terms and Policies Hub, which will serve as a central location for all of our terms and policies. Our hope is that any time users have questions ranging from what content we?ll remove to how developers should interact with Facebook to their rights as a user, they?ll have easy access to the answer. This new Page will be available at the bottom of most pages on Facebook under ?Terms?, from the Help Center, and at Facebook.com/policies.
