REPORT: Facebook allowed tech firms special access to user data
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NYPost.com:
Facebook granted some tech firms full access to its user data as it sought to cultivate lucrative business ties with them — long after it said it was dropping the practice because of privacy concerns, according to an explosive cache of secret documents and emails.
The social networking giant put companies like Netflix, Airbnb and Lyft on a special “white list” to sidestep privacy policies it had strengthened in 2014 and 2015 to protect its users, according to the documents, which were made public Wednesday by a UK Parliament minister.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It is not clear that there was any user consent for this, nor how Facebook decided which companies should be whitelisted or not,” Damian Collins, chair of the UK Parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, said in a statement accompanying the email excerpts and documents.
