Facebook Backpedals on Privacy, Sort Of

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos “Now we’ve heard from our users that we have gotten a little bit complex, I think we are going to work on that,” said Tim Sparapani, head of public policy for the company. “We are going to be providing options for users who want simplistic bands of privacy that they can choose from and I think we will see that in the next couple of weeks.”The privacy settings, which could be called publicity settings in the wake of the company’s decisions to open up the site after the f8 conference, have been criticized as being, among other things, Byzantine.

Sparapani made the announcement in an interview with American University radio. The portion in question starts at just over 26 minutes in. Below is a portion of the interview.
