CDT Statement on Facebook’s Proposed Changes to Privacy Settings

Washington, DC — Today, the Center for Democracy & Technology released the following statement in regards to the privacy policy changes outlined today by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg:

"Facebook's users have spoken and made it clear that they want control of their information. Despite all rumors to the contrary, privacy is not dead, it is on its way to a comeback in the form of simplified controls and better policies," said CDT President Leslie Harris. "While more work still needs to be done, these changes are the building blocks for giving people what they want and deserve."
