Facebook has announced launching several ‘Privacy Cafés’ to help users in getting advice on how to change privacy settings. The first pop-up ‘Facebook Café’ will open for two days in London, followed by four others in other parts of the United-Kingdom. According to the Evening Standard, the company motivated this initiative because a recent poll showing that over a quarter of UK users were not aware of how to properly customize their privacy settings. According to Mashable, Facebook pledged to have workers on hand to help users tailor privacy settings for “how much information is seen by who, as well as seeing which apps and websites you’ve got connected to Facebook.”
