- The company has vowed that users are “in control” of their privacy on its service.
- But when it comes to older apps, users still don’t have control. Many aren’t covered by Facebook’s more restrictive rules.
- Older apps can continue to get access to your data even if you haven’t used them in years.
This is why I have much of the weekend letting the Social Book Manager plug in for Chrome to whack away at delete all of my past content on Facebook, as well as now having selected maximum privacy and security settings.
Facebook continues to straight up lie saying ‘users are “in control” of their privacy”. As my post on selecting privacy options reveal, they are hidden deeply within the Facebook user interfac. Their default settings are maximum anti-privacy. It is quite a chore to set your privacy they way you actually want your privacy settings to be.
And you are not in control as it is nearly impossible and hugely difficult to delete past posts, comments or Likes.
