Facebook Moves Privacy Settings To Individual Posts, Photos, And Profiles; Adds Place Tags (AllFacebook)

Facebook is unveiling a raft of improvements for sharing posts, photos, tags, and places with exactly the people a user wants to see the content. The changes attempt to make the privacy settings more accessible and user-friendly. Inside Facebook: Among the many significant changes, privacy settings will soon appear on the profile and news feed publisher in-line with the content, rather than on a dedicated privacy settings page. Users will be able to add their specific or city-level location to any post, retroactively change the privacy setting of previously published content, and opt to require pre-approval any time they’re tagged in a photo, check-in, or other type of post. CNET / InSecurity Complex: Overall, the changes make it easier for people to understand what audience will be seeing what they post on Facebook, and to control who sees what others post that refers to them. The changes will start rolling out in coming days, and people will be prompted with a tour option when they are available.
