The ultimate goal with this update is to be more clear about their data practices; one way they’ve done it is through additional details and examples throughout. At Meta, they’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.
They’ve also included more ways to access controls you can use to experience our products in ways that are right for you. Users can continue to manage their privacy settings at any time and they’re committed to letting you know if we make important changes to how we collect, use and share your information.

Updating Controls for Your Privacy
New Audience Controls: Meta is 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 to their timeline unless they select a different audience for a particular post. This new setting will help make sure you’re sharing with the right people in your community.
New Ways to Manage the Ads You See: Recently, Meta consolidated the Ad Topics and Interest Categories controls into a single control that can be accessed on Facebook and Instagram, covering a more extensive set of ad topics. This allows people to use a single control to set preferences across ad topics that reflect the interest targeting categories advertisers may use to reach them and the content they might see in an ad.
