Over the years, Facebook has dealt with a seemingly endless array of privacy controversies. This has ultimately hurt user trust, for good reason. However, many users don’t even fully understand the social media giant’s policies. That’s why, this week, Meta announced that that it’s rolling out a comprehensive Privacy Center tool to help educate people about how Facebook collects and uses our information.
“To start, Privacy Center is now available to some people using Facebook on desktop, and we will roll it out to more people and apps in the coming months,” Meta wrote in a blog post announcing the new tool. “We’ve built a number of privacy and security controls across our apps and technologies over the years, and our goal is for Privacy Center to serve as a hub for those controls and privacy education.”
The Privacy Center will have five modules to educate users on various topics, including security, sharing, collection, use, and ads. These guides will offer a high-level overview of each privacy subject, answering frequently-asked questions and hopefully making them easier to understand. However, none of this changes the fact that Facebook is still collecting so much of our data — which is the bottom-line problem in the first place.
