In 2018, Facebook introduced its tool “Access to your information”, allowing users to see in one place what data the social network has collected about them. Now the company has used its experience with this tool from the past three years and changed it so that, according to the company, it is now more usable and transparent.
Access to information instead of the previous two (“Your information” and “Information about you”), now has eight categories: “Your activity on Facebook”, “Friends and followers”, “Settings”, “Personal data”, “Recorded information”, “Ad Information”, “Applications and Websites Outside Facebook” and “Security and Login Information”.
Each of these categories has its own subcategories and this should allow users to more easily find the type of data they are looking for.
The search functionality is also new and it should help you use the tool, ie make it easier to find the categories of data you are looking for.
Finally, Facebook has also added information about how your data was used to “personalize your experience,” which means why they show you certain ads. For example, you can see that your primary location was one of several signals that recently showed you an ad for a food delivery app. That information is already available in the “Why I See This” tool, but Facebook says they wanted to make it easier for users to access this information.
The updated tool is now available in iOS and Android Facebook apps and Facebook says it will soon be available on other platforms as well.
