Facebook Removing Regional networks completely

Facebook now have crossed more than 350 million people around the world who shares their lives online. In an Open Letter from Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg, he declared to remove regional networks completely.

Previously several communities could add networks for companies and regions as well and they even have networks for some entire countries, like India and China. Some of these regional networks now have millions of members and they concluded that this is no longer the best way to control user’s privacy.

Therefore, they’ve planned to create a simpler model for privacy control where users can set content to be available to only for friends, friends of your friends, or everyone.

They are also adding the ability to control who sees each individual piece of content that users create or upload as per the request of many Facebook users. To make it easier they are planning make the privacy settings page simpler by combining some settings.

In the next couple of weeks we’ll ask you to review and update your privacy settings, he said, you’ll see a message that will explain the changes and take you to a page where you can update your settings.

However in this new upgrade, the most awaited feature, dislike link, was not considered. Also some of the users were commenting about the irregular news article update in their home page status.
