NEW YORK (AP) - Facebook making its privacy controls simpler to use.

It is moving in reaction to a revolt among its users.

Protesters have been organizing campaigns to quit Facebook and privacy groups have complained to regulators after Facebook announced new features last month, including "instant personalization" that tailors other websites to users' Facebook profiles.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged that a lot of people are upset at the social networking site, during a news conference at the company's Palo Alto, Calif., headquarters.
