Giving You More Control of Your Privacy on Facebook

As part of Data Privacy Day, were introducing a new education campaign to help you understand how data is used on Facebook and how you can manage your own data. Were also announcing plans to make your core privacy settings easier to find, and sharing our privacy principles for the first time. These principles guide our work at Facebook.

Helping You Take Control of Your Data on Facebook
You have many ways to control your data on Facebook. This includes tools to make sure you share only what you want with the people you want to see it. But privacy controls are only powerful if you know how to find and use them. Starting today were introducing educational videos in News Feed that help you get information on important privacy topics like how to control what information Facebook uses to show you ads, how to review and delete old posts, and even what it means to delete your account.

Were also inviting people to take our Privacy Checkup and sharing privacy tips in education campaigns off Facebook, including ads on other websites. Well refresh our education campaigns throughout the year to give you tips on different topics.

Making Privacy Settings Easier to Find
We know how important it is for you to have clear, simple tools for managing your privacy. This year, well introduce a new privacy center that features core privacy settings in a single place. Were designing this based on feedback from people, policymakers and privacy experts around the world.

Facebooks Privacy Principles
Our efforts to build data protection into our products and give you more information and control reflect core principles weve had on privacy. Today were sharing these principles for the first time here, and weve included them below.

Were also developing resources that help other organizations build privacy into their services. For example, throughout 2018 were hosting workshops on data protection for small and medium businesses, beginning in Europe with a focus on the new General Data Protection Regulation. We hosted our first workshop in Brussels last week and published a guide for frequently asked questions. Around the world well continue to host Design Jams that bring designers, developers, privacy experts and regulators together to create new ways of educating people on privacy and giving them control of their information.

Well keep improving our privacy tools and look forward to hearing what you think...
