Facebook users in the United States and across the globe are starting to see changes the company made to the way it shows privacy settings. The company began rolling out the changes late Thursday night.
The social network detailed the changes last week in a company blog post. Users will now see a “privacy shortcut” menu at the top of every Facebook page that give answers to three basic questions: who can see users’ posts, who can contact a specific user and information on how to block individual users on the site.
Other new features in the update include a sortable activity log that lets users choose to see their actions on the site by type. For example, a user who is particularly concerned about photos they’ve recently uploaded to the site can choose to only look at those updates. In the case of photos in particular, users can also choose to remove tags associated with their names from multiple photos at once.
