Report: Facebook Gave Tech Giants Access To Personal Data


(New York City, NY)  --  A new report claims Facebook had arrangements with some of the world's largest tech companies that gave them access to its users' personal data.  A report in The New York Times says Netflix and Spotify had an arrangement that gave them the ability to read Facebook users private messages, and allowed Microsoft's Bing search engine to see the names of virtually all Facebook users' friends without consent.  

*Facebook also reportedly had arrangements that permitted Amazon to obtain users' names and contact information through their friends, and allowed Yahoo to view streams of friends' posts as recently as this summer.  The arrangements were reportedly found in hundreds of pages of Facebook documents obtained by The New York Times from records generated in 2017.
