Why Facebook’s Privacy Check-up Falls Short

Facebook appears to have learned its lesson from the recent “psychology experiment” controversy and moved informed consent up on its priority list. The social media platform is planning to push a multi-step privacy checkup that re-educates the users on privacy settings. Well-intentioned as it might be, this check-up program falls short as it is only designed for the web platform. With over 78% of its U.S. users now accessing Facebook primarily through mobile, this program clearly needs to develop on mobile version to cover its bases.
