California, Feb 26: Making it more easier for regular readers to understand, the social networking website with more than 500 million active users, Facebook, has rolled out a draft of its new privacy policy that is more shorter and easier to grasp.

Facebook said that the new private policy has been adopted based on the feedback that they have received from thousands of people and from their ongoing conversations with privacy experts, policy makers and regulators from around the world.

"At Facebook, we are constantly developing new experiences and features to help you control your information. Some of our recent work includes simplified privacy settings and publisher privacy controls that let you select your audience every time you post something on Facebook. We plan a lot more innovations in the months ahead so check back from time to time," said Facebook in their blog.

"However, there is more to controlling your information than just settings. It's also important that you understand how information is used and what your choices are. That's why the privacy team took on a new project and applied Facebook's unconventional, innovative spirit to develop a new privacy policy written for regular people," stated the blog post.

Facebook said that they had faced criticism over its former private policy, which has "5830 words of legalese" and "longer than the U.S. constitution - without the amendments." Facebook has added some new things and made some other concepts clearer.
