Facebook introduces new 'groups' feature

Social networking site Facebook has unveiled a suite of new features that would give people more control over their information and who can see it.


London, Oct 7 : Social networking site Facebook has unveiled a suite of new features that would give people more control over their information and who can see it.

The change will allow users to map their offline life to the online world through small groups.

Users will also be able to download all the data they have uploaded onto the site.

Facebook's chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said that users would also find it easier to see how individual applications are using personal information.

"The changes today are about giving people more control over how they share in a lot of different contexts," The BBC quoted Zuckerberg as saying.

"One of the things we have heard is that people just want to share information with smaller groups of people.

"It will enable people to share things that they wouldn't have wanted to share with all of their friends."

He added: "There are some things you are comfortable saying to all your friends at once but a lot of things you only want to share with your close co-workers or your family and there just hasn't been a great way to do that until now."

The new groups feature will let users form online havens around a discreet circle of people just as they do in the real world from family to work friends and from school friends to friends with a specific interest.

Members will then be able to share information with people specific to that group.
