Update Controls for your privacy
New audience controls: Starting today, we’re also rolling out a new setting to make it easier to manage who sees your posts on Facebook. Now, when someone selects a default audience, that audience selection will apply to new posts created on Facebook that they share on their timeline, unless they select a different audience for a particular post. Previously, your default audience for posts was the audience you most recently chose. So if you just published a post that was publicly available, your subsequent posts would be too. This new frame will help you make sure you’re sharing with the right people in your community.
New ways to manage the ads you see: RecentlyWe’ve consolidated the Advertising Topics and Interest Categories controls into a single control accessible across Facebook and Instagram, covering a broader set of advertising topics. This allows people Use a single control to set preferences among ad topics that reflect the interest targeting categories advertisers can use to reach them and the content they can see in an ad.
