On Wednesday, the mega-popular social website Facebook announced a re-vamped control over privacy settings it offers to its billions of users.

Facebook announced that “Today’s updates include Privacy Shortcuts, an easier-to-use Activity Log, and a new Request and Removal tool for managing multiple photos you’re tagged in. We’re also adding new in-product education that makes key concepts around controlling your sharing clearer, such as in-context reminders about how stuff you hide from timeline may still appear in news feed, search, and other places.”

The changes will roll out over the next few weeks. “These updates and new tools will begin rolling out at the end of 2012.”

One powerful new tool allows users to ask for photos of them to be removed from the site.

Also, the Activity Log will be updated.
