Facebook founder Facebook was established roughly 5 years ago by then student Mark Zuckerberg. Today, Facebook users shatter cultural and religious barriers inviting more than 300 million users globally. A big issue over the ever growing Facebook population is its security. Numerous scams, hacks, malwares and privacy issue complaints from several Facebook users were sent to the table. Facebook administrators implemented privacy patches over these years but it seems a remodelling of its system prove to be a better solution.

Today, its founder Mark Zuckerberg touches some of the key points on security issues. He explained how Facebook grew from a simple school community social media to a huge multi-cultural regional networks which even landed Asian countries like China and India.

In his Open letter, Zuckerberg stressed the importance of implementing a “simpler model for privacy control where you can set content to be available only to who you prefer”. Facebook will also add an option for users to control who sees each individual piece of content they create or upload.

The plan we’ve come up with is to remove regional networks completely and create a simpler model for privacy control where you can set content to be available to only your friends, friends of your friends, or everyone.
We’re adding something that many of you have asked for — the ability to control who sees each individual piece of content you create or upload. In addition, we’ll also be fulfilling a request made by many of you to make the privacy settings page simpler by combining some settings. If you want to read more about this, we began discussing this plan back in July.

Facebook will be implementing changes on user privacy setting over a couple of weeks. And so, Mark Zuckerberg urge Facebook users to continually review and update individual privacy settings.
