Several changes have been made within Facebook (for the better), because of the major uproar from its users.
What a crazy few weeks it’s been for Facebook. With the outbreak of angry users over Facebook sharing information with advertisers (without obvious consent), Facebook was forced to re-examine its privacy controls. It started with Facebook’s introduction of Social Plugins. Instead of the traditional Opt-In method Facebook choose to assume users would want this, and only offered a buried Opt-Out option. To remedy the privacy control confusion, Facebook has created a simple walk through of its privacy controls. Let’s take a look!
With the recent creation of Facebook’s Open Graph and the addition of Social Plugins many privacy advocates have voiced concerns. Now more than ever, users are concerned about protecting their privacy on social networks. So today we thought we would take you through a few of your options.
A new site has been released, the first of many highlighting the power of Facebook’s new Social Plugins. The site LikeButton.me shows content from across the web being shared via Facebook.
I know I have spent a lot of time reviewing Facebook lately, but there are so many huge implications to the new Social Plugins that it just can’t be avoided. Last week we briefly covered Facebook’s new Social Plugins. Today let’s take a deeper look at a few plugins, and give them a good old review.
Facebook has already changed the way we interact and communicate with people. With over 400 million registered Facebook users, chances are you, your mom, your sister, your uncle, your aunt, your friends from college, and your cousin – who you met only once about 15 years ago – are all on Facebook. And chances are, you are “friends” with all these people. Facebook allows you to make connections with these people when you otherwise couldn’t – or wouldn’t.
Today let’s review some of the changes that Facebook announced at its F8 Conference yesterday, including the new Social Plugins and the end of Facebook Connect.
