Facebook is the finest medium for recreation but the process of use may need some serious consideration under the light of the latest changes of the privacy rules. The control settings of the company have changed to ensure data privacy in an integrated manner.
As per David Baser, the recent incidents surrounding Cambridge Analytica has brought the serious issues under the limelight. This has compelled the consumers to check and understand the necessary control of the privacy settings.
However, the social media giant has also decided to proactively announce the controls in public for greater acceptance and enhanced understandability. This will be done to educate the users regarding the privacy settings available to the users. This will be done to educate the people with the basic security settings before initiating the operations in the networking sites.
The company is also on the verge of recruiting numerous engineers to take an active part of the team that will primarily deal with the centralized privacy of data use. The team will be headed by Baser.
This venture was initiated with a project named Clear History, which will allow the users to delete every piece of information gathered by Facebook from an exterior source. This setting will be released in a few months’ time. The current setting is very demanding for the average users as it is an amalgamation of the latest and old settings.
The company has taken numerous steps to help the customers embrace the latest alteration of the privacy setting. This was done post the incident of mass collection of data from the platform due to the security breach.
Though the privacy system was present in the platform, it was in a scattered form that restricted the users from its proper application. Now, the setting related to the privacy has been consolidated to a single option in the name of privacy shortcuts.
The challenge for the social media platform will be to ensure the integrated application of the setting rather than the implementation of the same.
