Facebook Updated New Privacy Controls

Facebook new privacy
After all, Facebook updated new privacy controls. The changes will be rolled out from now through the end of the year. The new privacy tools will make it easier for you to pick which of your friends or subscribers can view your personal info, status updates and photos. This will also make it easier for Facebook's users to quickly determine who can view the photos, comments and other information about them that appears on different parts of the website, and to request that any offensive photos they're featured in be removed. It also makes it simpler for you to request that a photograph of yourself be taken down by the uploader.
In addition to this, Facebook added some restrictions in messaging and commenting. Now you cannot send any message directly to a unknown person. For this you have to pay 1$. Now you cannot do one comment multi-times.   
Your Facebook privacy settings will be organized under one list, called Privacy Shortcuts. A new privacy "shortcut" in the top-right corner of the website provides quick access to key controls such as allowing users to manage who can contact them and to block specific people:

A refreshed Activity Log will show more information about where your personal data, photos and other information spreads across the Facebook:

A new Request Removal Tool will help you ask whoever uploaded those awkward photos of you to delete them:

Facebook apps will now have to make two separate requests to access your personal info and post to your account:

Facebook apps Request_Write
Facebook apps Request_Read

Facebook also going to change the way third-party apps, such as games and music players, get permission to access user data. An app must now provide separate requests to create a personalized service based on a user's personal information and to post automated messages to the Facebook newsfeed on behalf of a user - previously users agreed to both conditions by approving a single request.
Nearly 600,000 Facebook users voted to reject the proposed changes, but the votes fell far short of the roughly 300 million needed for the vote to be binding, under Facebook's existing rules. The proposed changes also would eliminate any such future votes by Facebook users.
