PALO ALTO (CBS SF) — Facebook is opening up about those personalized ads on news feeds.

The social network is also giving users more control over which ads users see.

Facebook released a video explaining the new features, which help users understand why they’re seeing certain types of ads, and lets them choose which kinds they would rather see.

The changes will roll out in the next couple of weeks.
