  • Facebook Highlights Its Privacy, Downloading and Deleting Features In lieu of Scandal

Facebook has made updates to make the privacy settings, data deleting and data downloading features much more accessible and easier to users

Facebook has recently transformed into a traitor from being a best friend. One of the groundbreaking social media site and app to come out of the 21st century, the app is used by millions around the world.

However, data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica recently confirmed that Facebook has been profiling its users’ information including their likes, uploads, downloads and data information.

They have been selling this information to major advertising campaigns for a more persuasive consumer targeted marketing. Facebook’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg recently addressed the issue in a public statement and said that they would ensure making the data of the Facebook users more secure.

After that, a new update is being offered under the supervision of Erin Egan, Facebook’s chief privacy officer.

According to Egan, they are making the settings regarding the data uploading, access to main system and browsing, sharing information and using Messenger app on Facebook and Facebook Lite will be made more accessible and easy to find for users.

She highlighted where all these settings will be and how some of the more conspicuous settings will be easily accessible.

The question remains for many critics that these settings have been existing on the site but they had not been highlighted, easily accessible or even given information about to the users until now.
