Facebook Plans On Opening Cafes To Offer Users Privacy Check-Up

Facebook has decided to open a number of pop-up cafes across the UK to give people a privacy check-up to convince users that it does care about privacy.

Facebook is trying to convince two billion users on its platform that privacy is its priority by opening up several pop-up cafes in the UK for privacy check-up.

The reason why almost everybody has no idea how to check their privacy is partly due to the complicated setting pages with redundant menus as well as confusing languages of Facebook. A recent poll indicated that around one-fourth of Londoners didn’t know how to modify their social media accounts’ privacy settings.

There will be five Facebook Cafes opened around the UK. The first one will be inside The Attendant coffee bar in London. If visitors join a “privacy check-up,” they will receive free drinks.

Users will get to learn how to set up their privacy settings for their Facebook accounts. They will know what personal information others can see and what apps can access their accounts.

It is clear that Facebook pays attention to privacy because that’s what it has to do following the Cambridge Analytica scandal and countless leaks and breaches. So far, all the company has been doing is to apologize and make an update to its privacy settings.

Yet, it keeps being criticized. Bloomberg recently reported that the giant social media platform was secretly gathering Messenger conversations transcripts of its users.

And no cafes are going to fix this. Rather, the move puts the responsibility on users to keep check of their privacy settings, instead of trusting the platform to keep them protected.
