Facebook Now Lets Android Users Block Background Collection of Location Data

Facebook has rolled out an update to Android users that gives them a greater degree of control over the sharing of location data with the social network. From a report:

Specifically, the update makes it possible to stop Facebook from using tracking your location in the background when you are not using the app.
The change brings parity to the iOS and Android Facebook apps.
In introducing the new finer-grained controls, Facebook insists that it is "not making any changes to the choices you've previously made nor are we collecting any new information."
