Facebook criticised over privacy

BBC reports on changes Facebook wants to make.

The social networking site Facebook has come under fire for planned changes to its privacy settings.

It wants to “simplify” the process so users only have to set them once, instead of for each individual feature.

Facebook says the change will help people share more information with one another.

However, critics argue the new set up could lead to members being persuaded to share too many personal details – their date of birth for example.
