Facebook users should also read the November 15th blog by Erin Egan, Facebook’s Chief Privacy Officer, Policy (https://www.facebook.com; “Updates to Data Use Policy, Statement of Rights and Responsibilities Take Effect”). In brief, Ms. Egan said that “…nothing about this update changes advertising policies and practices….” She wrote that the changes only clarified Facebook’s prior policies.
Ms. Egan’s lengthy blog outlines many areas about which Facebook users need to be aware (e.g., use of tags, advertising, setting changes). Facebook users might not mind having their posted information used in ads but they should know what is being done — and what, if anything, they can do about it. I also encourage Facebook users to periodically visit the Facebook “Site Governance” and “Privacy” pages to keep current on any future policy changes.
