Facebook Enables Privacy Controls from Handsets
Facebook recently explained in a blog post that it has added privacy tools to the mobile version of its site. Users who want or need to make changes to their privacy settings while away from a computer can visit m.facebook.com/privacy from a browser-equipped handset for access to their profile settings. Through this tool, Facebook mobile users will be able to control who can see what content on their Facebook profile (friends, friends of friends, or everyone), as well as make more granular changes to advanced privacy controls. Facebook says any changes made via the mobile site are reflected in the individual's online profile immediately. Facebook is also offering a mobile-friendly version of its privacy guide.
