Facebook Shared User Data With Dozens Of Device Makers

Jun 04, 2018

Facebook is under scrutiny yet again in a new investigation by The New York Times. Facebook reportedly gave device makers, including Apple and dozens of others, access to users' data and that of users' friends. In some cases even when those friends thought their data settings prevented such sharing by APIs, the data was still shared. Facebook told the NYTimes that the data sharing did not violate its privacy policies.
