Earlier, to access the same set of settings you had to stop what you’re doing and navigate through a separate set of pages. The process has been cut short with release of new update. Now, for key settings, you just have to go to the toolbar to manage various options such as “Who can see my stuff?” “Who can contact me?” and “How do I stop someone from bothering me?”

Activity Log

Next is the updated Activity Log which promises to make navigating for Facebook users easier. Users can now easily review their own activity on Facebook, such as their likes and comments, as well as photos and posts that they are tagged in.

New Request and Removal tool

Another major addition is the new Request and Removal tool that makes it easier for users to report and remove offensive photos that they have been tagged in.

Times before, you had no easy way to take an action against a unwanted photo you were tagged in. But now within the updated Activity Log, you can find a Request and Removal tool for taking action on such photos. If you spot things you don’t want on Facebook, simply inform the concerned person who posted them to remove them.

To do this, go to the “Photos of You” tab, select multiple photos, and ask friends to take down the shots you don’t like – you can even include a message about why you want him to do so. The tool also lets you untag multiple photos at once.
