Simplify the legal print - it’s what Facebook users want and what the social media site is looking to deliver.
The new privacy info page is more visually appealing - the text is larger and simplified for people of all reading levels. But the fine print did not change. So, will users still go for it? (Image Source: Facebook)
A tech blogger for MSNBC says Facebook makes everything much easier to understand.
“Seriously, at a glance, this seems entirely for the better. Take, for instance, the segment titled "How advertising works." Not only does it explain that personalized ads can be delivered to you based on your location, age and interests, but it actually shows the tool used by advertisers to set their targeting preference — and even lets you try it out.”
And the policy director at the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California tells The Wall Street Journal more companies should be doing this.
"It is very good for companies to actually be making privacy policies easier to understand -- but users should be looking for privacy policies that are not only readable, but actually protect their privacy."
"[Scammers] might be able to impersonate you if they had your phone number ... They're saying, 'Please give us your phone number,' but they're not telling you whether they'll share it or whether they'll sell it or use [it] for malicious purposes. In fact, you don't know who you're dealing with."
But the American Morning crew on CNN has a simple answer - don’t post personal info - period.
ALI VELSHI: “The key point--you do have to opt in.”
STEPHANIE ELAM: “You do have to opt in.”
VELSHI: “Okay, so stop blaming Facebook for you putting your information on a free service and then getting all mad that they use it.”
ELAM: “And I do see people who put their home address on there.”
VELSHI: “Yeah, I don’t know why anyone would do that.”
ELAM: “I’m like, take that off. Or my cell phone number, I wouldn’t do that either.”
So, do you think users will like what they see on Facebook’s new privacy page - or is it the same invasion of privacy with a facelift?
