Facebook has over 1 billion users of all ages from all around the world. The social network is quite popular with teens, despite recent reports claiming that teenagers are now bored of Facebook. Privacy on the network as well as off it has always been a concern, and Facebook’s rather complex privacy settings aren’t exactly easy for everyone to figure out. In a bid to make user’s lives and data more private on Facebook and on the internet in general, the social network has teamed up with the National Association of Attorney Generals to educate their teen users and their parents how privacy online can effectively be managed.
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg says that they hope to “ensure that young people make safe, smart and responsible choices online.” Starting tomorrow, 19 different state attorney generals and Sheryl will release a public service announcement for the respective states, along with a video called “What you can Do to Control Your Information.” The names of these 19 states haven’t been divulged, but it is said that more states will be coming on board in the near future.
