SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Facebook on Thursday began rolling out its "privacy checkup" aimed at helping users of the huge social network better manage sharing their information and postings.

The new system uses a blue dinosaur to guide Facebook users through its maze of privacy settings for personal information and for sharing their posts.

"We know you come to Facebook to connect with friends, not with us," Facebook's Paddy Underwood said in a blog post.

"But we also know how important it is to be in control of what you share and who you share with."
