Watch it live: Facebook privacy policy Q&A

Watch it live: Facebook privacy policy Q&A

Summary: Do you have questions about Facebook's proposed changes to its privacy (aka Data Use) policy? Tune in and watch Facebook Chief Privacy Officer for Policy Erin Egan answer them live.


Update - Since the livestream is over, I have updated the above video with the dedicated version.

On Friday, Facebook proposed improvements to its privacy policy, which the company calls its Data Use Policy. You can view the tracked changes above and go through an explanation of them over on the Facebook Site Governance webpage. Facebook has also scheduled a live video Q&A for 9:00 AM PDT / 12:00 PM EST for Monday (today).

I've embedded the live stream above, but you can also watch and ask questions by going to and clicking the "Talk to Us" button. If you prefer to comment on the changes rather than just ask questions, pick your language: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Turkish, Korean, and Portuguese.

Facebook Chief Privacy Officer for Policy Erin Egan will be hosting the event. It looks like Facebook spokesperson Andrew Noyes, a former journalist, will be interviewing him. Noyes just posted this in the video's comment section:

I'm about to sit down with Erin Egan, Facebook's Chief Privacy Officer-Policy. Starting at 12p ET, she'll be taking your questions live about our proposed changes to the Data Use Policy. Have a question? Click the "Talk to Us" button by the video viewer.

In addition to the new privacy policy, Facebook last week also launched a Facebook Terms and Policies Hub at This webpage will serve as a central location for all of the service's terms and policies, and will be available at the bottom of most pages on Facebook under the word "Terms", as well as on the Help Center.

  • Protest facebook's lack of privacy for users and demand they fix it

    The following site is drawing attention to Facebook's appalling privacy practices and the changes they are planning to make, and are attempting to get Facebook to acknowledge our privacy rights and making proposals that Facebook should change their policies to get the users of Facebook a fairer deal.

    Please do read the site, and educate yourselves as to what is going on here, and please do join the protest, as this topic is extremely important to all Facebook users.
