Facebook Inc. (FB) is simplifying privacy settings for Groups to a more "intuitive" model, categorizing settings as "public" and "private" instead of "public", "closed" or "secret."

The company said it has "worked closely with global privacy experts and advocates who are working to raise awareness of how to better manage your information online."

Facebook said that "admins will be able to clearly choose whether or not the group can be found in search and other places."

The company also detailed its efforts to keep private groups safe, focusing on "proactive detection, tools for admins, and transparency and control for members."
