Facebook Rolls Out New, Simplified, and Improved Privacy Features


There's been a lot of talk recently about Facebook and privacy but the settings weren't always user-friendly. Now Facebook began rolling out their new simplified, yet feature-rich security settings to keep its users on top of their privacy.


It doesn't appear to be out for all accounts yet but if your account has been switched, you should be prompted to set your security settings as soon as you log in. In fact, it will keep bugging you until you do set them—forcing users to take an active role in their privacy.


  The settings in the wizard have been narrowed down a lot to avoid confusion, and really only give you two choices—Facebook's recommended setting for that feature, or your old settings. However, once you go through the wizard, you will have a new feature on your profile that allows you to set who can see each individual status update, wall post, or any other individual post you make: everyone, friends of friends, only friends, or something more specific. (For Example : blocking certain people)

Google Officially Converts Homepage to Minimalist, Fade-In Style

google_homepageThe page shows just the logo, elongated search bar, and two buttons when you first arrive, and then the top-level menus fade in when you interact with it. It may not show up right away, but after a hard refresh—or cookie wipe—you should start seeing the new effects.
