Submission + - Facebook Rolling Out New Privacy Settings (

adeelarshad82 writes: Today Facebook has started rolling out new privacy settings intended to give users more control over who can see their profiles. The social networking site has been testing these changes with a limited group of U.S-based users since July, but is now rolling them out to all of its 350 million users. When the update hits a user's account, they will be presented with a "transition tool" that requires members to review and update their privacy settings. There will be two options: preserve old settings or accept privacy recommendations from Facebook.
