FTC Approves Settlement With Facebook Over Privacy Issues


The federal government has finalized its settlement with Facebook to resolve charges that the Facebook exposed details about users' lives without getting the required legal consent.

Following a public comment period, the FTC has accepted as final a settlement with Facebook resolving charges that Facebook deceived consumers by telling them they could keep their information on Facebook private, and then repeatedly allowing it to be shared and made public.

The settlement requires Facebook to take several steps to make sure it lives up to its promises in the future, including by giving consumers "clear and prominent notice and obtaining their express consent before sharing their information beyond their privacy settings, by maintaining a comprehensive privacy program to protect consumers' information, and by obtaining biennial privacy audits from an independent third party."

That settlement was reached last November but was subject to a public comment period and final vote by the FTC.
