Facebook reveals 'simplified' privacy changes

(BBC)
Social network Facebook has said it will offer a one-stop shop for privacy settings in response to user concerns. Mark Zuckerberg admitted the settings had "gotten complex" for users. It follows a storm of protest from users over a series of changes on the site that left its members unsure about how public their information had become. The new system will offer users one privacy page with a list of all their applications and a choice of three settings for each. see Making Control Simple (Facebook blog) by Mark Zuckerberg.
