Facebook Adds a New Tool to Enhance the Privacy of the Photos Shared
Facebook's latest addition of the new privacy tool is here to take the privacy of the
images shared to the next level. The social media giant is working towards

labelled as 'Rights Manager for Images'.
The feature will be a part of Facebook's Creator Studio, wherein the right owners will have more control over the images that are released by them. As a first step, the right owners are required to submit a copy of the image, including a CSV file with the image mega data.
