New security options are now available to mobile Facebook users
Don’t you hate it when you find a terrible looking photo of yourself on a friend’s photo album , but you can’t do anything about it seeing that it’s not yours? Or how about trying to reset your password using the Facebook app on your phone, but you can’t do it because it’s only available through the main web site?

Well folks, the time has come to make things a little bit easier and less stressful to mobile Facebook users out there – that’s because Facebook has brought on additional security controls and options to mobile users. Specifically, the Mobile Social Reporting feature allows users to basically police and flag things that they don’t particularly like – such as a photo of you that you want to be taken down. Currently, it’s available through Facebook’s mobile site, m.facebook.com, but it’s expected to be offered by the various mobile apps out there in the next few months.

Secondly, Facebook provides mobile users the new password reset option that allows you to reset your password in the event you forget about it – all on your phone! Moreover, you’ll have the option of choosing the email address of where you want the recovery links to be sent – plus, additional ways to confirm the identity of users who wish to modify their passwords.

Indeed, it’s nice to see Facebook giving back some control to its mobile users. So if you know of an unwanted picture of yours out there, now might be the great time to fully utilize these new features available to mobile users.
