Facebook Gets New Complaint About Privacy Issues

Friday, December 18, 2009

NEW YORK (AP) -- Some organizations concerned with privacy want the feds to take another look at the new rules Facebook has for its users. The Electronic Privacy Information Center has asked the Federal Trade Commission to look into the changes Facebook has made to users' privacy settings. The organization and nine others want Facebook to go back to its old privacy standards. The new changes were trotted out last week and they include treating users' names, profile photo, friends list, gender and other data as publicly available information. Such information had been restricted in the past. The FTC confirms that it has received the complaint -- but had no other comment.
