Begich Responds to Facebook Changes


U.S. Sen. Mark Begich released the following statement after Facebook announced it is making revisions to the social network’s privacy settings. Begich was one of four senators who sent a letter to the company last month asking Facebook to revisit a decision to provide select third party websites with personal information users previously had the ability to keep private.

“I appreciate Facebook reworked its privacy settings, in part in response to the concerns of lawmakers and other users. Like my colleagues, I support an “opt-in” rather than an “opt out” process, but it seems the company has come a long way to ease concerns.

“I will continue to monitor the changes and strongly believe Facebook must do all it can to notify users on any changes to privacy settings. Unless users are notified, the changes mean nothing.”
