Facebook tightens up on privacy of pages

Facebook has unveiled major changes to its privacy policy so users can determine what is shown on their profile pages more easily.

Items posted online will now have their own dropdown menu so users can select who can view it, rather than in a separate settings page.

Facebook users will also be able to approve posts they are 'tagged' in before the item appears on their profile.

With the Pending Posts feature, when users are tagged in a photograph, video or comment they will also have the option to confirm or remove their identity before it appears on their page.

Facebook said the ability to approve tags was the number one request from users.
