We are living in a era of Information technology where social media networking is of the key factors which has become a part of our daily routine. We share lots of stuff over social media sites like facebook.
Facebook is the largest network of social networking site with tens of millions of active users. Facebook has recently made some new changes in the privacy settings so now more information is publicly available which includes your city, education, interests and also friends. The pages with the button “Become a fan” have turned into “LIKE” button and the pages you LIKED will become a part of your profile that is publicly available to the world.
So under the old privacy settings, one could easily write “Swimming” or “Cooking” as your interests and still hide them from the public but Thanks to Facebook for the new settings which has made people’s life more miserable by removing this system and now the randomos can search also by filtering results based on interests. So things you share becomes a in the knowledge of outer world even if you don’t want to . But Thanks to U.S senators who have taken action against these new privacy settings and asked Facebook to roll back to the previous ones. On 27th April, the US senetaor, have also written a letter to Zuckerberg in which they have asked them to roll back the recent changes Facebook has made. Now lets see how he responds.
