Facebook Rolls Out Interface And Group Updates, Along With Data Download

Facebook has finally unveiled what it has been working on, and as expected, the changes are related to Facebook’s dashboard user interface. It has been improved (though you can bet many folks will disagree) to give users more visibility into how applications use their data to personalize the experience, which is probably what privacy advocates have been hoping for. Aside from that, Facebook Groups has also been updated, allowing you to share information such as photos and updates with a certain portion of your friends instead of all your friends at one go, ensuring that your boss won’t have to see the picture of you skiing when you called in sick that day. Finally, the company also introduced a feature that would allow users to download all of their Facebook data locally to a computer, though fortunately they were smart enough to include a password challenge before allowing you to do so. After all, you wouldn’t want your room mate to steal all your personal details, right?
