On the desktop site, there's a new panel called Access Your Information that allows users to easily manage or delete a wide range of things-posts, reactions, comments, search history-from Facebook.

Users can also download everything including photos they have uploaded, contacts they have added, posts made on their timeline and more.

The changes to the privacy settings will happen in the coming weeks.

The firm has redesigned its privacy settings on mobile to move all the settings into one page.

The social network will also roll out "tools to find, download and delete your Facebook data".

Lawmakers in the United States and Europe are demanding to know more about the company's privacy practices after a whistleblower said consultancy Cambridge Analytica improperly accessed data to target U.S. and British voters in close-run elections.

Google is now rolling out mobile-first web indexing
And with Google's help, he adds, "those GIFs will become a part of the normal fabric of search and, consequently, of commerce". Alphabet's Google agreed to acquire Tenor , a four-year old mobile startup that draws some 300 million people a month.

When the program was launched in 2015, Facebook's then lead of global data partnerships, Spencer Smith, said: "We take privacy very seriously and we want to give users more control".

In a Wednesday blog post by chief privacy officer Erin Egan, Facebook insisted that the change has "been in the works for some time".

The company claims that the update has been "in the works" for some time, but that recent events have underscored their importance.

Earlier this month, whistleblower Christopher Wylie revealed political consulting company Cambridge Analytica obtained profiles on 50 million Facebook users via an academic researcher's personality prediction app. You will also now be able to see clearly which of your information can and cannot be shared with apps, given that a lot of rumors and conspiracy theories (some more believable than others) have been flying around. Users may now add more layers of protection to their account, like the two-factor authentication; control personal information by reviewing what is shared; control the ads that appear and set ad preferences, and manage who sees a user's posts and profile information.

The update follows the recent controversy brewing over an alleged data breach of almost 50 million Facebook users. "In the coming weeks, we'll be proposing updates to Facebook's terms of service that include our commitments to people".

A Facebook spokesperson said in a statement to BuzzFeed News, "We are strongly committed to protecting people's information".
