Facebook Looks to Provide More Data Transparency with Revamped 'Access Your Information' ToolBy Social Media Today (contrib. Mojified Media)
Facebook has launched an updated version of its 'Access Your Information' tool, which aims to provide more transparency around the data that Facebook collects, and how it can be used to target you with ads.
The refresh is likely a means for Facebook to get ahead of Apple's coming IDFA update, which will better inform iOS users, via direct pop-up notifications, as to the data being collected by each app they use. Though that's not exactly how Facebook is framing it.
As explained by Facebook:
"We first launched Access Your Information in 2018 so that people could have a central place to access their information on Facebook. Now that we’ve had some time to learn about how people use it, we’ve reorganized and given it a new coat of paint, so that it’s even more usable and transparent. We want to make sure that your information on Facebook is useful, easy to understand and easy to find." . . .
