In 2009, social networking has changed privacy policies without informing users.
Facebook Commission will require prior consent has to change.
Facebook is close to reaching an agreement with the U.S. government over accusations that he misled the social network users on the use of your personal information, the newspaper “Wall Street Journal.” The agreement, which awaits final approval U.S. Trade Commission, require that Facebook sought consent from users prior to “change back” in their privacy policies.
This means that Facebook must obtain the consent of the Internet to share data. The agreement also would require Facebook to undergo independent audits of privacy for 20 years. The agreement concerns a complaint by the commission in December 2009, which stated that changes made in the privacy policies of Facebook users exposed information for applications third parties and advertisers.
The social network has user data – such as name, photo, city, and friends list – public by default, forcing users to go back and redefine your privacy choices. At the time, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg described the changes as “a simpler model for privacy control.”
