Privacy ShortcutsFacebook isn’t resting on its laurels yet. It almost seems as if the company is squeezing everything just in time for the holiday season. The latest foray of updates are Facebook’s new privacy tools or what it calls “better controls for managing content.” Today, Facebook is adding privacy shortcuts, an easier-to-use Activity Log, and a new Request and Removal tool for managing multiple photos. 

The main piece of the update are the privacy shortcuts which are now located at the toolbar. The Help Center content can also be accessed through these shortcuts. Next is the updated Activity Log which makes navigating easier. Users can now easily review their own activity on Facebook, such as their likes and comments, as well as photos and posts that they are tagged in.

Another major addition is the new Request and Removal tool that makes it easier for users to report and remove offensive photos that they have been tagged in. Furthermore, Facebook is also adding in-context notices that will prove to be useful for its users. “For example, we’ve created a series of messages to help you understand, in context, that the content you hide from your timeline may still appear in news feed, search and other places,” the company said.
