One shouldn’t have to consult their lawyer just to know exactly what happens when they click the “Like” button on Facebook, and this fact seems to have finally hit home. Legal documents are written such that it is impossible to derive a misinterpretation, but often it becomes difficult for the average user to derive any interpretation at all.
The new Data Use Policy outlines how and where your data is used, under what condition, and what control you have over the same. The policy is divided into clear, easy-to-understand sections:
- Your information and how it is used
- Your information on Facebook
- Your information on other websites and applications
- How advertising works
- Minors and Safety
- Some other things you need to know
Facebook is looking for feedback on this latest change, visually and textually comparing it to their current official policy. If the feedback if positive, Facebook will consider making this their official policy.
