MONTAGNE: The social networking site Facebook plans to roll out new features today aimed at offering users more privacy. This comes after critics complained that Facebook was making its users' information too accessible. The site has hundreds of millions of users. Earlier this week, CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologized. He promised that Facebook would not share user's personal information with advertisers. Some of the changes due out today reportedly included clearer and simpler tools for keeping information private.
