GigaOM reports on My Face Privacy, a new product from Israeli software firm CallingID, designed to manage the privacy settings of multiple social networking sites—including Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. The desktop-only application works like a password manager and offers four preset privacy settings. “Social networks are trying to make as much information visible to as many groups as they can,” said CallingID Executive Vice President Yair Nissan. “They have a default set of privacy policies, which is not restrictive at all. They complicated the way that you can change and manage your privacy settings—you have to go through many screens, and unless you’re an expert, you probably won’t find all the different parameters because they’re hiding them very well.”
