You are in control of how you connect and share on Facebook. Recently, many of you said you wanted more streamlined controls, so we made a number of changes to provide them. As of today, you can use these controls no matter where you are, what kind of device you have access to, or when you want to make a decision about your information.
All of Facebook's privacy controls are now available from any browser-enabled mobile device to the more than 500 million people, like you, who are using Facebook in every country around the world. Few online services offer any privacy controls to their mobile users. None that we know of offer the same control as the desktop version.
As mobile devices have become more sophisticated and widespread, we've noticed that people are creating content and accessing Facebook at every moment of the day, in many locations—not just from desktops.
Wherever you are connecting and sharing through Facebook, you should be able to make real time decisions over your information. Now you can.
You can get to privacy controls on mobile by going to m.facebook.com/privacy or by going to the Settings page and clicking the "Change" link next to the words "Privacy Settings." Check it out for yourself to:
- Select who can see the content you post by setting the simple control for sharing on Facebook to friends, friends of friends or everyone,
- Fully customize your granular settings, if you want, and have them take effect instantly, and
- Read through our comprehensive privacy guide, formatted for mobile devices.
We're rolling out the settings right now. If they aren't live for you yet, check again soon.
We hope you think having anywhere access to your privacy controls is helpful. We'd love to know what you think; share your feedback at www.facebook.com/privacyfeedback.
