More privacy on Facebook.

Facebook makes it easier for the users of the social network to control their privacy and to share posts, photos, tags and other content with exactly the people they want.

Among other things, many Facebook integrated many settings that could previously only be edited in a separate section, directly into the website.

The privacy changes on the online network are implemented in the coming days. Announced the online network Facebook in a blog entry

"Who can see this" will be clearer now on

After criticism from users, privacy advocates and politics at Facebook's privacy policy, Facebook had granted, its now around 750 million members, in recent years more and more control over their privacy. The coming changes mean a massive change and maybe a turning point in Faceooks privacy and data protection practice.

For sure Facebook recognized that Google+ ( Google`s new social network is more secure than Facebook, so they must react and respond.

How Facebook's Privacy Upgrades Stack Up Against Google+

But anyone who’s spent 10 minutes inside Google+ will see quite a few similarities to what’s coming to their Facebook account. Controls to change exactly who gets to see what on status updates, wall posts, and profiles are the easiest targets for crying copycat. Dig in, though, and you’ll notice details, like the ability to test out your new settings with a “View profile as” button, and a change of sharing settings from “Everyone” to “Public.”

Still, copying isn’t quite a crime, at least until the lawyers show up. So which social network handles privacy-plus sharing better: Google+ or the newly concerned Facebook? Let’s break it down and declare the winners:

Status Updates: Google+, Unless You’re Lazy or Majorly Extroverted Facebook owns up to the fact that choosing who could see each post required a visit to “a settings page a few clicks away,” but the new controls for choosing who can see “This job is killing me” are in a button just below the text entry box. “Public,” “Friends,” and “Custom” are the default options, and Facebook says other options--co-workers, Friend Lists, and Groups you’ve joined--are coming. But Facebook will also remind you that people tagged in your post, and their friends, can see the post, and that mobile apps that don’t support Facebook’s new controls will default to the standard privacy of showing everyone you’re friends with. And while you can now change the privacy of a Facebook post after the fact, without deleting and re-posting it, that’s not a new feature, that’s a flaw that should have been fixed long ago.

Facebook’s privacy kinda works, then, if you can easily carve your social circles into friends, co-workers, and a few lists that you carve out far in advance. Google+ offers those same kind of basic groups in “circles,” but it’s far easier to create new circles of specific people: Tuesday Lunch Club, Volleyball, College, Former Law Firm, and so on. When you’re posting anything on Google+, you can choose between “Public,” “My circles,” “Extended circles” (which allows friend-of-a-friend viewing), or type a few letters of specific circles, or people, to share with. That way, the friendly secretary at your old job, and everyone at your new job, can see you take a swipe at a dumb move by your former firm, but not the higher-ups you stayed “friends” with for just-in-case purposes. Even the Navy thinks it's a good platform for secure-ish sharing.

Photos: Facebook if Everyone You Know Is There, Google+ If Not Want to get pictures of your kids over to relatives, or snaps of your amazingly authentic wood-grilled Neapolitan pizza to your foodie friends? Facebook is still the place where they’re most likely to see them, whether you specifically send them, tag them, or just let them go up. On Google+, where membership is still kinda-sorta invite-only, there’s less chance they’ll see them in their stream. You can manually share your photos through Google’s linked Picasa Web Albums service, and the photo tools themselves are much better on Google+, but Facebook is where you can share photos quickly to the most people.

On a pure privacy front, Google+ certainly has the edge. Facebook has finally improved the most aggravating aspect of their photo system--the ability of just about anyone to tag you in any photo, and have it show up on your wall for nearly anyone to see, at least until you decide otherwise. Now you can block automatic tagging and review potential embarrassments in a “pending posts” section of your profile (according to Gawker), and when you pull down a tag, you can also send along a request to pull down the photo, or block that person entirely. Google+ automatically limits the tagging of your mug to people in your circles, but allows you to scale your exposure wider or smaller.
