COMING SOON: Changes to Facebook's privacy controls, to make them easier to find and understand.

SPECIFICS: The most visible change will be a new "privacy shortcuts" section that appears as a tiny lock on the right-hand side at the top of people's news feeds. This feature offers a drop-down box where users can get answers to common questions such as "Who can see my stuff?"

CHECKING PHOTOS: There will also be a tool to help people review all the publicly available pictures identifying them on Facebook and offer suggestions on how to request that an unflattering photograph be removed.
