Facebook to unveil new privacy controls

By Washington Post editors

On stage today at TechCrunch Disrupt in New York, Facebook’s vice president of product Chris Cox announced that starting Wednesday, Facebook will be rolling out “drastically simplified” and improved privacy controls, theTech Crunch blog reports.

Cox didn’t give any details but did suggest that they should alleviate some of the recent privacy problems Facebook has faced.

Ever since the recent wave of privacy backlash began following Facebook’s f8 conference, Facebook has been saying it was listening to feedback and would respond. No less than CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been talking about the issues publicly. He has said they “missed the mark” and “made a bunch of mistakes.” He also has said they are working on a “simpler way to control your information.”

I doubt it amounts to much actual privacy

They are selling out data to groups for money AND will continue allowing others to find ways to see what we have put on our profiles, even if private
