New Delhi: Taking a step forward to ensure data privacy, Facebook on Wednesday introduced a new version of login system for users which allows them to filter how much information they want to share with third-party mobile apps.
The best part about the new features is the option for `Anonymous Login` which allows its users try an app without sharing any of their personal information from the social network.

On Wednesday, the social network also rolled out a new service to distribute ads across a network of mobile applications, opening the door to a new source of revenue.
The service, which has been in the works for some time, allows mobile-app makers to insert various ads within their software, with Facebook sharing advertising dollars with the developers.
