Facebook makes a deal: Will need users’ OK to expose their info

Facebook is nearing a settlement with federal regulators that would require it to get the OK from its users before it can make changes that expose their profiles and activities to a wider audience, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Facebook would have to get explicit consent from its 800 million users before changing its privacy settings.

The changes would resolve an ongoing  case before the Federal Trade Commission which must approve the deal.
