Facebook gave 61 firms extended access to user data
2018-07-03, 09:12 AM,
Despite originally claiming that data sharing had stopped in 2014, the company has now admitted that it was extended afterwards.

Facebook gave 61 businesses including Nike, Spotify, and delivery firm UPS special access to its users' data, it has emerged.

The revelation about the extended access was made in a written submission the company filed to US Congress as part of an inquiry into how it handles data.

It contradicts the company's previous statements that data sharing had been closed down in 2014.

Although the company had introduced stricter rules about how third-party apps accessed user data in 2013, 61 firms were granted extensions of at least six months.

Lol, this is the real example of "money talk".

There should be more than that. They have sold the data to too many companies.

Why people think they will not share data just because they have said so... they are not operating for some social service, making money is #1 priority and they will do it anyhow.

I don't really understand though, what user data are they giving access to, specifically. Does anyone know?
