Facebook announced it will update its terms
of service as of Jan. 1, 2015. Facebook also
is updating its cookies policy ( new policy vs
current policy ); updating its policies to
explain how it gets location information on
users. The update features a new ‘Privacy
Basics’ page that will provide information
on how to control information. It will also
give users extra powers to opt out of
advertising and to understand how
Facebook uses data collected on users
The site said it was also testing out a ‘Buy’
button that allows users to purchase things
without leaving Facebook. The changes will
be put into place on January 1, 2015.
Facebook said that it welcomed feedback on
the new policies.
The new policies will also give more
information on how data such as location,
battery and signal strength — which is
taken by mobile apps — are used by
Facebook. The company says that location
data helps serve relevant ads to users, and
that taking information on battery and
signal the app can make sure it works well.
No settings will be changed by the update,
which will instead provide extra
information to users so that they can make
the changes themselves.
