Facebook has been ripped several new ones lately over its apparent penchant for revealing too much of exhibitionists' information, destroying bad relationships, costing idiots their jobs, etc.

Apparently, Facebook is now sorry about all that, and will be drastically simplifying its privacy controls. That was the word today from Facebook vice president of product Chris Cox, who announced at TechCrunch Disrupt in New York City that the new settings would be rolled out tomorrow.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also begun flagellating himself publicly, and

has promised that Facebook is working on a "simpler way to control your

information."

Of course, that won't help this lady get her health benefits back.
