Facebook is planning to make it easier to control the flow of information on the social site and let users "take charge" of their experience.
"Privacy Basics offers interactive guides to answer the most commonly asked questions about how you can control your information on Facebook," said Erin Egan, chief privacy officer at Facebook.
"For example, you can learn about untagging, unfriending and blocking, and how to choose an audience for your posts. This information is available in 36 languages."
Facebook said that the updated guidance will give people a better view of how their location information is used, for example.
The company is also being more transparent about mobile phone information that may be gathered.
Egan claimed that the network uses this data to "show the most relevant information" based on a person's location and the Facebook features they use.
"For example, in the future if you decide to share where you are you might see menus from restaurants nearby or updates from friends in the area," added Egan.
"We use the information we collect to improve your experience. For example, if you're locked out of your Instagram account you can use your Facebook information to recover your password.
"Nothing in our updates changes the commitments that Instagram, WhatsApp and other companies have made to protect your information and your privacy."
The proposed updates are open for review for one week. Egan explained that Facebook will refer to comments after that date and decide how to progress.
"Our goal is to make the information about Facebook as clear as possible. Our hope is that it won't take long for people to read through this and really get it," Egan said.
