Facebook has now made it possible for more than 500 million users to control how they connect and share information on the social networking site via any browser-enabled mobile device.
According to the announcement, Facebook users can now access privacy settings from any location regardless of the type of device they have. The company boasts to be one of the few companies that offer the same privacy controls to their mobile users as the desktop version.
“Wherever you are connecting and sharing through Facebook, you should be able to make real time decisions over your information. Now you can,” wrote Michael Eyal Sharon, Facebook’s mobile product manager, in a post on the company blog.
By utilizing privacy controls, users can authorize important information such as who can see the content they post on a day-to-day basis. Users can also fully customize granular settings and read Facebook’s privacy guide.
Users can access privacy controls on mobile by going to m.facebook.com/privacy or by going to the Settings page and clicking the “Change” link next to the words “Privacy Settings.”
