We saw a preview earlier this month, but now Facebook’s simplified, slimmed down privacy tools should be arriving on your profile. Any minute. Take control and untag those gross pictures you didn’t even know existed. There are two big changes you should care about right now: shortcuts and a beefed up activity feed that’ll let you scrub your past free of embarrassment. Online, at least. The shortcuts look like this, conveniently popped at the top right of the site. Do this. Right now. Even if you think you know how you have your privacy toggles toggled, you should give it another look. Go through the first two and make sure you have your settings the way you want them—it’s possible you’re sharing photos or status updates with the whole entire Internet and have no idea.
