San Francisco/New Delhi: You can now determine who can view your photos, comments and other information that appears Facebook.

In the company’s effort to address user concerns on their personal information, Facebook Inc has rolled out a variety of new privacy controls.

The tool also allows users to request that any objectionable photos they're featured in be removed.

A new privacy "shortcut" in the top-right hand corner of the website provides quick access to key controls such as allowing users to manage who can contact them and to block specific people.

Facebook Director of Product Sam Lessin said the changes were designed to increase users' comfort level on the social network, which has roughly one billion users.

Facebook, Google Inc and other online companies have faced increasing scrutiny and enforcement from privacy regulators as consumers entrust ever-increasing amounts of information about their personal lives to Web services.
