Facebook gets safer; launches new tools to boost user privacy

New Facebook tools to protect users, prevent harassment

Neighbourhood Technology Desk/Avi Arya: Facebook has given out a series of tools to ensure greater security and privacy for its users. New features, that aim to curb harassment, include preventing a blocked connection to contact you through a new account, alerting you when someone uploads your photos but doesn’t tag you, and down-ranking posts that ask users to like or share.

  • Blocked connections won’t be able to contact you anymore

  • A massive crackdown on fake accounts

  • You’ll know even about photos that you aren’t tagged in

  • None will ask you to like, share, comment ever again
