Yesterday I was writing a tutorial on how to lock down Facebook’s anti-privacy settings. The item labeled “Privacy” has almost nothing to do with privacy. Instead, actual privacy settings are hidden in almost two dozen other locations in the Facebook user interface – by design.
Facebook, like everything huckster Mark Zuckerberg does, was intentionally misleading about privacy and did everything possible to make it hard to secure your personal information and near impossible to delete your information.
The system, which will be introduced to Facebook users globally over the coming weeks, will allow people to change their privacy and security settings from one place rather than having to go to roughly 20 separate sections across the social media platform.
