Facebook Users Working Hard To Keep Their Privacy

Mark Zuckerberg was sent a message from a group on Monday, but it wasn’t through Facebook.

The co-chairmen of the House Bipartisan Privacy Caucus, Edward Markey (D-Mass) and Joe Barton (R-TX), have sent the Facebook CEO a letter seeking answers in the wake of another round of user privacy concerns, according to the Wall Street Journal. The latest incident, which was revealed on Monday, involved Facebook applications transmitting users’ personal identifying information to dozens of advertising and Internet tracking companies.

The Journal reports:Given Facebook’s 500 million users and the amount of information they post on the site, “this series of breaches of consumer privacy is a cause for concern,” the lawmakers wrote.

┬áSome privacy advocates said it’s problematic that the information was leaked at all, regardless of what happened to it. Facebook needs its users to trust it with their data because if they don’t, they won’t use the site to share as much as they do now.
