Facebook has been trying to simplify and help people understand its privacy settings for a while now, and today they're launching a new interactive tool that functions as both a series of how-to guides and a checkup tool.
The new Privacy Basics page is essentially an interactive manual where you can dig into a variety of privacy and security settings. Every page has a series of frequently asked questions and you can access your own settings directly from the guide. You can also go through the Privacy Checkup to make sure all your settings are as dialled in as you think they are.
