As announced by Facebook on their official blog, the leading social network revealed the changes where they claim it will be easier for users to control the posts, photos and tags being shared to them.

“You have told us that “who can see this?” could be clearer across Facebook,” Facebook‘s vice president for product Chris Cox wrote on the blog post.

“So we have made changes to make this more visual and straightforward.” Cox added, noting that improvement on what users want to show up on their profiles and what happen if they will share them.

Facebook noted the current situation of Profile Controls where settings are clicks away, in which later the inline menu will let the user know who can see the photo album content and can be changed with only one click.

In addition, Facebook said that tools will be added where users can approve or reject any photo or post the user is being tagged before it will appear on the user’s profile or publicly.

In addition, an option will be provided where users can change who can see their posts even if they have already posted it on their walls. Options for removing tags or content will be presented more clearly.

As of this writing, Facebook did not reveal the exact date the changes will be applicable but said that it will be in the coming days.
