The social media giant delayed the new policy after a coalition of privacy groups asked the Federal Trade Commission to block the changes on the grounds that they violated a 2011 settlement with the regulatory agency.
Facebook said that the company is taking time to ensure that user comments are reviewed and taken into consideration to determine whether further updates are necessary and they expect to finalize the process in the coming week, the New York Times reports.
The report said that the original proposal has drawn tens of thousands of comments from Facebook users, most of them opposing the changes.
