Facebook are in the process of rolling out a major change to their privacy settings which have long been criticised. In what they have described as a “proactive and global effort” to upgrade the system.

In the coming weeks, the privacy settings for each post will be inline with the post via a dropdown menu rather than hidden away in the configuration pages.  Public posts in your profile will be labelled “public”. Users will be able to veto photos that they are tagged in.

"People should never have to wonder when they post something on Facebook who is going to see it," said Meredith Chin, Facebook's Manager of Product Communications, "This is about moving privacy settings to the forefront."

"You have told us that 'who can see this?' could be clearer across Facebook, so we have made changes to make this more visual and straightforward," Chris Cox, Vicepresident of Product for Facebook, wrote in a blog post.

The recently released Google+ network won rave reviews for their approach to privacy controls.
