Facebook is announcing new features to its service that it says will give users simpler privacy choices -a move the company also hopes will end the controversy around its privacy policies.

In the last several weeks, Facebook has come under fire both from Congress and privacy activists over the amount of user data that gets exposed on the site.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg is headlining the event and our sister site, CNET News.com, is on hand live-blogging from the announcement.
