Facebook Inc. is starting to comply with new privacy rules in Europe. And then, to get ahead of scrutiny everywhere else, the company said it will provide the same protections to the rest of its 2 billion users.

Users in Europe this week will get notifications about some of the information they’re sharing, like their religion and political views, and will be asked whether they want to keep it on their Facebook profiles ahead of strict new privacy rules that take effect in the European Union on May 25.
