Facebook mulls U-turn on privacy

(BBC)
Facebook looks likely to cave into pressure from users and simplify its privacy settings in the near future. It follows criticisms of its privacy policy from US senators, the European Union and civil liberty groups. The social networking giant told BBC News that it was listening to the message from users that it has "made things too complex". "We're working on responding to these concerns," a spokeswoman said.
