GRAND JUNCTION Apps and websites are always updating and Facebook has recently made some changes that could improve it's privacy standards.

The social media site has about 1.3 billion users and now all of their information will be a little bit more secure.While many recent updates have been asking users to share more information on Facebook, the newest initiative known as "Privacy Checkup" is making sure users know exactly who can see their information.

"I think this is a great move for Facebook," CMU Instructor Adam Cochran said. "Its something that they haven't done in the past. They tend to do things the other way and make things more open to the public."

Prior to the new security update Facebook's default privacy settings allowed the general public to see all of your posts unless you manually changed your profile settings. Now it automatically switches so only user's friends can see their information.
