Get ready — Facebook is making changes to how users access its privacy settings, again. The social network hopes this latest overhaul will make the now bloated process easier to understand, according to a blog post today from Sam Lessin, a director of product for Facebook.The changes, which come a day after Facebook implemented its new privacy polices, are mainly cosmetic.
