Facebook Is Running ‘Privacy Checkup’ On Users Profiles


Facebook wants to confirm whether you’re are on the right privacy settings the way you want -or not, that’s why the social network is came up with a new initiative which lets you review your current privacy selection and making aware of your selected audience.

Today, when I opened Facebook, a popup appeared titled ‘Privacy Checkup‘ which  reads, “Hi Sreedev – Sorry to interrupt. You haven’t changed who can see your posts lately, so we just wanted to make sure you’re sharing this post with the right audience..”. It also provides a space to select the audience for future posts.

It looks like you haven’t changed who can see your posts in a while, so we’re just checking that your privacy is set the way you want. You’ll still able to change the audience any time you post something”.
