Earlier this week Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged they'd gone too far, missed the mark, and had to perform a do-over.
That's what happened today. At the heart of the change: Significantly reduced information readily available to everyone, the sign most privacy advocates were seeking. Its long list of settings has been grouped and redesigned to present themselves more easily on the page, meaning a more legible experience.
"Now we'll be giving you the ability to control who can see your friends and pages. These fields will no longer have to be public," Zuckerberg blogs.
It has established a new privacy page to outline the impending changes, and it promises to stop making change upon change if users generally support where it is planting the flag.
