Facebook and privacy the ongoing battle continues. Facebook has recently launched a new feature in their continuing quest to allow users a better understanding of their privacy on Facebook. The new feature lets users ask Facebook's Chief Privacy Officer, Erin Egan, about their privacy concerns.

  The official blog post on Facebook states:

To help continue this conversation, we created this Ask Our CPO feature, which will enable you to send us your questions, concerns, and feedback about privacy -- and give us the opportunity to share with you how we think about privacy. We hope this feature will serve as a regular forum where we can have a direct conversation about privacy.


This new feature will not cover account specific questions, those are directed to Facebook's support.  It will cover broader questions and issues if the blog post is to be any indication of the content it will cover things like "Does Facebook sell user information?" (No by the way, it does not).

Anyone can ask a question, if you would like to do so, the application is here.

What do you think of Facebook's new Ask the CPO? Do you think it will help users with their privacy concerns? Let us know in the comments!
