Facebook is a phenomenon. Since it launched in 2004, the insanely-popular social networking service has amassed a total number of one billion users, and that number continues to grow as of this writing. So it would make a lot of sense if Facebook decides to improve the privacy education for its users, especially the new ones. Today, Facebook is announcing that it will be rolling out a more detailed educational privacy information for new users, thanks to the feedback it has received from the Irish Data Protection Commissioner’s Office.
The company says that the updates will be made visible to new users beginning today. When new users signup on Facebook, they will be taught how tagging people and things work, how to interact with apps, how ads work, and how to find friends through searching. New users will also learn about the default settings as well as how to select an audience when sharing information on Timeline. Facebook has also added in-line privacy controls to the new user experience so that “people can select an audience for their High School, College/ University, and Employer as they sign up for Facebook.”
