Facebook has also launched a Privacy Basics site that intends to explain in layman’s terms how you can control information that others see about you. The new site acts as an animated guide to see how others can interact with you and what you see.
“Our goal is to make the information about Facebook as clear as possible. Our hope is that it will not take long for people to read through this and really get it,” said Erin Egan, Facebook’s chief privacy officer, in a blog post.
The new policy includes questions like “What kinds of information do we collect?” and “How can I manage and delete information about me?”
Facebook also revealed information on how it uses payment data including collection of information on each purchase, credit card data, account authentication information, billing, shipping, and contact information.
