Facebook changes sharing controls

Users can approve photos before content appears on profiles

Facebook has announced sweeping changes to privacy control on the social networking website. Users can now approve or reject photos and posts that they are tagged in before the content shows up on their profiles. The move comes two months after Google launched Google Plus, a competing social networking site that allows selective content sharing within small groups. The changes will roll out in the “coming days,” according to Facebook.
