Changes to Facebook’s Privacy Policy

Changes to Facebook’s Privacy Policy
California: Meta, the company that owns Facebook and Instagram, has changed its privacy policy to make social networking sites easier to understand.

In a blog post on its website, Meta said that after the changes, the company will not be able to collect, use or share user data. But the company will help consumers understand how consumer data will be used.

The well-known tech company has come under fire in recent days for collecting and handling users’ private data.
Facebook, Messenger and Instagram users will start receiving policy change notifications confirming that the new policy will take effect on July 26.

“With this change, our goal is to be more transparent about our data matters,” Meta wrote in a blog post.

In addition to the policy change, Meta has also confirmed that the company is releasing two new controls for better privacy settings. Under one of which the user will be able to decide who can access his post and who can not see the user’s post.

Using other controls, the user will be able to decide on Facebook and Instagram which ads to show on his feed and which not.

This change of policy will not apply to the messaging app WhatsApp and other meta items.
