Facebook has revamped and simplified its privacy controls.

Users of the social networking website can now designate content they post as being viewable to just friends, or friends of their friends, or everyone. "We're adding something that many of you have asked for — the ability to control who sees each individual piece of content you create or upload," Facebook chief exec Mark Zuckerberg explained in an open letter to Facebook users.

Michael Richter, Facebook’s deputy general counsel for intellectual property, product, and regulatory affairs, explained the decision at the Official Facebook Blog, said, "While a lot of people participated, the total number of people commenting did not reach the threshold of 7,000 that makes a vote necessary according to our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. Because of this — and the fact that many of the comments were positive — we’ve decided to adopt the revised policy."
