- Audience and Visibility
- Your Information
- Community Standards and Legal Policies
Facebook also makes some relocations of small categories stand-alone tabs. One example is the News Feed tab, which will now be under Preferences. Another example is the payment menu, which will now incorporate all payment tools. The “Privacy Settings” has also been removed, and its privacy elements relocated in different categories.
