Facebook notes that all settings will now be accessible from a single menu, which means no more jumping between screens to find what you need.

Authorities in Britain have seized data from Cambridge Analytica in their investigation, and European Union officials have warned of consequences for Facebook.

The social media giant announced a series of design changes to its settings and privacy pages on Wednesday.

USA regulators and state attorneys general are increasing pressure on Facebook as they probe whether the company's data-collection practices have hurt the people who use its services. "These updates are about transparency - not about gaining new rights to collect, use, or share data".
