Michel Protti, chief privacy officer for product at Meta Platforms, wrote in a blog the updates don’t allow the company “to collect, use or share your data in new ways”.
Protti claimed Meta Platforms was “inspired by feedback from people who use our technologies and privacy experts” to rewrite the policy.

Meta Platforms previously faced criticism over its collecting and handling of personal data.
