Pages «VKontakte» will be private

The social network «VKontakte» plans to introduce additional ways to restrict access to user data. To do this, you will have the ability to close your profile from third-party views.

The administration of the social network says everyone can make a private page, leaving access to the profile only to friends. In addition, in the coming month it is planned to make it impossible to view a list of users who have shared any record. Only the authors themselves will be able to watch the reposts. This is only part of the upcoming changes, but the company will report later on other innovations later.

Changes in the policy «VKontakte» are associated with the increasing cases of initiation of criminal cases based on content posted on the network by users. According to the administration, the state structure usually do not pay due attention to the context and do not distinguish publication from repost.
