CNET is reporting that a Facebook representative has confirmed that the world’s largest social network will soon roll out simplified privacy settings in the face of the privacy firestorm they are currently enmeshed in.
The CNET article quoted Andrew Noyes of Facebook as saying:
“The messages we’ve received are pretty clear. Users appreciate having precise and comprehensive controls, but want them to be simpler and easier to use. They also like the new programs we have rolled out, but want simple and easy ways to opt out of sharing personal information with applications and websites.”
Hopefully these simpler settings (details are still unknown) will assure at least some users that Facebook cares. If not, then there is always Quit Facebook Day.
