About the update, Meta stated “We’ve always set out to build personalized experiences that provide value without compromising your privacy. So, it’s on us to have strong protections for the data we use and be transparent about how we use it.”
Since the company is ensuring more transparency to users regarding its data collection practices, it has added clearer explanations and used illustrations to describe the details. The illustrations would be helpful for users to understand various scenarios of data collection and use, and consequently, better assist them to take any action that they might ever want to take.
Meta is also trying to alert users about the policy update using new in-app prompts, although it is unlikely that most users would bother reading the details or updating their privacy settings.
In addition to this, Meta is updating its Terms of Service as well, which provides more context about what the company expects from people who use its platforms.
