The Privacy Center is now available to everyone who uses Facebook on desktop and mobile, and connects directly to this new updated Privacy Policy.

New controls for users

Starting today, a new setting is also rolling out to make it easier to manage who can see your posts on Facebook. Now, when someone selects a default audience, that selection will be applied to new posts on Facebook that person shares on their timeline, unless they select a different audience for a particular post.

Previously, the default audience for posts was the latest audience that had been selected. So if a post was just made public, subsequent posts kept that setting. These new settings will help ensure that content is shared with the people you select.

New ways to manage ads

Controls for ad themes and interest categories have been consolidated into a single place that can be accessed across Facebook and Instagram, covering a broader set of ad themes.

This allows people to use a single control to set ad preferences that reflect interest targeting categories.
