Social networking giant Facebook has made some crucial changes in its privacy policies just one year after it has made the updated.
Facebook officials said that the company has invited feedback from the users within a week about the latest changes after which it will make the required changes in its policies.
According to the reports, the tech giant has not made any changes in the process in which it shares user information with advertisers.
While describing the latest privacy updates in a blog post, Facebook Chief Privacy Officer Erin Egan, wrote on Thursday:
“We’ve heard from some of you that it can be difficult to control the types of ads you see if you use multiple devices and browsers. In the past, if you opted out of certain kinds of advertising on your laptop, that choice may not have been applied for ads on your phone. We know that many people use more than one phone, tablet, or browser to access Facebook, so it should be easy for you to make a single choice that applies across all of your devices.”
Meanwhile, the Facebook is also going to roll out an interactive graphical guide, called Privacy Basics, for its users. The planned online tool would provide the users with click-by-click information about the type of info they want to see or what others see while visiting their Facebook pages or how the users can manage their interactions with other users.
The American Facebook users who opt not to see certain types of ads will now be able to entertain their wish in all the devices they use to access the social site.
Reports suggest that the company is also developing its ad preferences tool for several countries, including the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Canada and Australia.
