Facebook seems to be actively listening to its users now as it has announced the development of three new features that will primarily address privacy concerns related to app usage.
 
According to the social networking company, people would sometimes worry "about sharing information with apps and want more choice and control over what personal information apps receive". This led them to test the implementation of Anonymous Login (which will enable users to log in privately) and Facebook Login (which will give users more control on what information is shared).
 
"Sometimes people want to try out apps, but they're not ready to share any information about themselves. For this, we've introducing a way to log in to apps anonymously," posted Facebook on its blog.
 
Anonymous Login is Facebook's answer to numerous user requests of wanting to try an app without giving their personal data right off the bat. As the name implies, you won't have to provide even your username or password in using an app so privacy concerns would be minimized -- not to mention the fact that you don't have to always remember your login credentials. And once you've gotten used to the app and decided to use it fully, you can then use the new Facebook Login.
 
Facebook Login will enable users to select only specific information that they'd allow the apps to have access to. More importantly, users won't have to worry about apps automatically posting something on their wall without explicit permission -- in this updated Facebook Login, apps would no longer be allowed to that.
 
Both Anonymous and Facebook Login are still being tested by a handful of developers and would be available in a few months with Esset Koyal Group Capital Management.
 
The third update, rolling out in a couple of weeks, was one concerning the app control panel -- a new centralized dashboard containing all the apps the user has. In it, they could manage app permissions, add new ones or remove previously approved ones.
 
"We'll soon start reviewing apps that use Facebook Login to help ensure higher quality apps are available to people -- apps that ask for the information they actually need and aren't posting anything back to Facebook without people's explicit permission," it says on Facebook's post.

most likely, yes. seeing as they emphasize that it's for users who wants to 'try out' an app without giving their info

i just hope the socalled updated control panel is not just some glorified settings page. we prefer actual functionality upgrades than more colors

the anonymous logn sounds fishy to me.. i'm thinking they're still going to collect metadata from you even if they wont require u to give username/pw
