Facebook Allegedly Sells Users’ Info


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Facebook,
is yet again, alleged for selling users’ information to third parties,
particularly with the advertisers, said a report published by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].


Newspaper further says that Facebook, a social networking website,
may face a crackdown by European Commission that is planning to stop
the way the website “eavesdrops” on its users to gather information
about their political opinions, sexuality, religious beliefs – and even
their whereabouts.


Report says that move by European Commission comes after paper’s
investigation that highlights the extent to which Facebook can help
companies to focus adverts according to the profiles of users.


Report claims that Facebook uses a sophisticated software to gather
information about its users private information in addition to their
activities on the website, to make it available to advertisers.


Everything people share with their friends on Facebook is
being tracked by the firm, retained, and can be used for commercial
purposes.


It can even harvest information by performing keyword searches on
behalf of advertisers. In this way, it can find out, for instance,
details about people’s political beliefs or their sexual preferences.


Facebook stores messages and “chats” sent via the site and keeps them
on its database even after they are deleted by those involved in the
private online conversations.

Following consistent reports and major privacy concerns, EU can issue
a directive for Facebook in January which will ban such advertising
practices unless users specifically allow it, the newspaper said.


Facebook has denied the allegations.
