SAN FRANCISO (KCBS)—If you are a Facebook user, you may have notices a message in your inbox announcing the company’s new privacy settings.
The notice takes you to a page that explains that they are trying to clarify their privacy policies. Some of these are changes but most of it’s just clarifications of what already exists.
Facebook is frequently criticized for having confusing privacy polices and frankly, they still are, though they are described using more plain English this time. Essentially they are stating that if you give them information, they can use it.
