Facebook the social networking giant has made a major change in the design and layout of its settings section. This comes following the data misuse scandal that Facebook had to go through earlier. The details of the changes made were announced by Facebook in a blog.
As per some reports from the web, Facebook was heard stating that the revamp of the settings menu was already in progress prior the scandal and it is in compilation with the new EU rules. The company has made a major change on the FB platform by revamping the layout of the settings section on the mobile devices. Unlike the present settings menu which has around 17 different options which are marked with a short title, the new 'Settings' menu is now single page menu with all the tools and settings located under one banner making it easier for the user to locate them. The new grouping of controls makes it easier for a user to find the appropriate setting for their use.
Further, a new Privacy Shortcut menu has also been added in the new update. The new shortcut allows a user to manage their account's privacy settings conveniently without making much effort. Facebook has also added another feature which is called 'Access Your Information'. This new feature allows a user to check or delete their social media activities done in the past and will also be able to see the personal data they have shared on Facebook.
