Facebook Update Makes It Easier to Control Privacy via Mobile

Posted by at 9:51 am on August 23, 2013

Facebook has added new steps to its Facebook Login tool.

Facebook Login lets people download apps and create app/user profiles with their Facebook credentials rather than set up an entirely new account/sign-in for that particular app. Facebook is now giving people more granular control over what is shared back to their Facebook page.

Mobile apps using Facebook Login must now separately ask for permission to post back to Facebook. This means people can use Facebook Login and prevent those new apps from posting to their Facebook page if they so wish. Facebook said it also improved the load times of Facebook Login by 31%.

The changes are being applied to all users automatically and don’t require that mobile device owners take any further action.
