Facebook is planning to make some changes to its privacy policy on Sept. 5. According to the post Proposed Updates to our Governing Documents (edit 18.3.15, removed original link since post was removed or moved) by their chief privacy officer Erin Egan you now have time to leave feedback regarding the proposed changes.

In a nutshell, the changes mostly include the new data use policy and statement of rights and responsibilities that lay out more clearly what Facebook already does with your personal information. [links are no longer up]

This change comes after a U.S. judge granted final approval to Facebook’s $20 million settlement of a lawsuit over targeted advertising on last Monday, August 26.

That being said, I’d like to remind you that iubenda operates a privacy policy generator for Facebook apps. Facebook requires every app to have a privacy policy. Find it here.

Update 9.9.2013:

Facebook has announced the delay of their privacy policy update for an additional week after the feedback has come in overwhelmingly negative.

Additionally, Facebook has “received” an open letter addressed to the Federal Trade Commission signed by six privacy groups titled “Facebook’s Changes Regarding Sponsored Stories“.

The letter is signed like this:

Respectfully,

It’s worth a read.
