Privacy is one of the most important concerns in modern times, particularly given that the majority of us and the information related to us may be found online. Even though Facebook has 3 billion active users, the company was still vulnerable to Cambridge Analytica, which released the personal information of thousands of people. In addition to this, the social media corporation was involved in other controversies, many of which were similarly connected to the disclosure of individuals’ private information.
The modifications will be implemented on Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger, as the parent firm Meta has revealed. Other programmes owned by Meta, like WhatsApp, Workplace, and Messenger Kids, will each have their own privacy rules in addition to this one.
Meta is not just working on this, but they are also developing a new privacy tool that will allow users to choose who can view their Facebook postings. People now have the ability to choose who will be the default audience thanks to this functionality.
Facebook is attempting, through the implementation of these tools, to make its data collection and sharing practices with advertisers more transparent. Other social media firms, in addition to this one, are also focused on improving their users’ ability to maintain their privacy.
