Facebook adds features to address lax privacy

October 7, 2010 |

On Wednesday Facebook introduced 3 features which should improve privacy controls for those who seek it.  Acording to the report:

The biggest change for users will be the new groups feature, which allows people to identify small circles of friends on the site, and share specific information and communicate with just those people.

Users can decide whether the groups are public or private, and choose which information they want to share with each group. Previously, Facebook allowed users to create lists of friends, but Mr Zuckerberg said only about 5 per cent of users ever took advantage of the feature.

The problem is, Facebook has form.  It won’t be taken as repenting its evil ways just yet at least as far as Steve Hutchison of the Age is concerned.
