The company insists the changes are in form, not substance, bolding some lines, adding captions and illustrations; instead of presenting that information as a wall of text. The result still ultimately looks like big slabs of text, but it’s designed to appease regulators around the world, who are keeping a closer eye on how social media platforms inform consumers.
While the text looks different in both; these updates don’t allow Meta to collect, use or share your data in new ways.
Meta clarifies that “Although the text looks different in many places, Meta does not collect, use or share your data in new ways based on this policy update and we still do not sell your information”, said the company in a press release.
Interestingly, Meta claims not to collect your data “in new ways”; which indicates that the company continues to collect your data as it did until now. By the way, if you don’t know what happens to your personal information after it’s been collected; a recently leaked internal memo said the company doesn’t know either.
