Last updated on: May 28, 2010 14:24 IST

Facebook is beefing up privacy protections on the world's most popular online social network.

This comes in the wake of rising concerns that Facebook makes it possible for Internet stalkers, cyber criminals and even nosy neighbors to gain a wealth of information about its users without their knowledge, thanks to a confusing system for setting privacy safeguards.

According to Facebook, it would roll out changes over the coming weeks that would give users more powerful tools to prevent personal information from being accessed by others.
