The Canadian privacy commissioner is happy with changes made by Facebook, following an investigation of the site's policies last year.
Jennifer Stoddart said the social network had vastly improved the sharing of personal information with third-party developers.
She believes that Facebook now provides users with clear information about privacy policies.
In May the social network made wide-ranging changes to its site. These changes came about partly as a result of pressure from privacy commissioners and campaigners around the world.
One of the major concerns of the Canadian commissioner was the way Facebook gave third-party developers virtually unrestricted access to Facebook users' personal information. The new model means developers must inform users of the data they need
and seek consent to use it.
We're also pleased that Facebook has developed simplified privacy settings and has implemented a tool that allows users to apply a privacy setting to each photo or comment they post, said Stoddart.
