Facebook has overhauled its oft-criticised privacy control system to allow users to manage visibility settings and image tags on their profiles more easily.
The privacy control panel has been expanded from a single settings page to a series of in-line menus. People posting items in a profile will see a drop-down menu allowing them to choose who can see the information.
Facebook has also added a screening system for image tags. Rather than automatically displaying tagged photos on a profile page, users will be able to screen and approve images before they are visible on their profile page.
Other changes include the ability to control the visibility of status updates, and an expansion of the tagging functionality to include locations, wall posts and status updates.
"Your profile should feel like your home on the web. You should never feel like stuff appears there that you don't want, and you should never wonder who sees what's there," Facebook vice president of products Chris Cox wrote in a blog post.
"The profile is getting some new tools that give you clearer, more consistent controls over how photos and posts get added to it, and who can see everything that lives there."
