Facebook may be holding firm to its real-name policy, but at least the social network is giving users more options when it comes to alternative names on their accounts.
Facebook Thursday announced the rollout of Privacy Checkup, a tool aimed at helping users better control who sees their content, which the social network began testing as early as March and officially introduced in May.
Thursday is the first day of spring, and Facebook shared some spring-cleaning tips for users looking to tidy up their News Feeds, shine up their profiles, organize their notifications, and get their privacy settings in order.
The ink is barely dry on Facebook’s redesigned News Feed, which it is still in the process of rolling out, and there is already a browser extension that enables users to return to their old News Feed layouts.
We reported last week that Facebook added a way for users to request their friends’ real (non-Facebook.com) email addresses, and it now appears that this functionality has been extended to all information not included in friends’ about sections.
