Facebook updates privacy controls
Facebook users now access privacy settings by drilling down from the "Settings" menu in the upper right corner. A new icon, with only the most commonly used privacy options, will get its own icon in the upper right corner. The options in the icon include: "Who can see my stuff;" "Who can contact me;" and "How do I stop someone from bothering me?" It'll also contain a magnifying glass symbol for looking up help in controlling privacy settings. "It has a lot of potential for users. But I'm not sure most people will think to click on it," says Rainey Reitman, activism director for the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
