BetaNews: Facebook admits to yet another shocking example of leaking user data

BetaNews: Facebook admits to yet another shocking example of leaking user data. “Facebook has sneakily used a blog post purportedly about ‘protecting people’s data’ to reveal that it has failed to do precisely that. In a post in its almost ironically titled Privacy Matters series, Facebook admits that it shared private user data with thousands of app developers when it should not have. Two years ago, Facebook implemented a privacy policy that stopped apps that had not been used for 90 days from sharing data with developers, but it turns out that data was in fact still shared.”
