San Diego, CA, June 8, 2010 – Mobile Distortion announces the release of Privacy for Facebook, the first iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad app designed to help users manage their Facebook privacy settings. The release represents an effort by Mobile Distortion to educate and empower users to take control of their online information and identity.
With over 500 million active users, Facebook is the most active social network in the world, and the second most popular site overall, behind only Google1. A series of controversial updates to Facebook privacy options have been released in the past few months2, which have resulted in more private information being exposed, without users’ consent3.
A growing number of Facebook users, media outlets, and lawmakers have criticized this increase in exposure as a privacy violation4. The safety of children using services such as Facebook is also a growing area of concern5.
About Privacy for Facebook
Privacy for Facebook was conceived when James Jennings, president of Mobile Distortion, noticed how much personal information his friends were inadvertently exposing through Facebook. The app guides users through the multiple Facebook privacy options, making recommendations on best practices. This guidance is automatically updated, for free, as Facebook releases new privacy options and defaults.
