 UK Parliament Exposed Facebook Selling User Data Zuckerberg: Never


According to the British Standard Evening News, in late November, DCMS exercised legal authority to collect a number of Facebook internal documents from Six4Three, an American software developer. It is understood that Six4Three is filing a lawsuit with Facebook in the United States, accusing Facebook of acquiring unauthorized calls and text messages from some users, and enabling some third-party partners to obtain friendsinformation from Facebook users.

The documents obtained by SCMS are mainly from 2012 to 2015. DSMS said that during that period, Facebook changed its privacy policy and no longer allowed third-party companies to access Facebook usersfriends information. However, some companies seemed to be granted exemptions, including streaming media platform Never Fly, residential rental website Abe Ying and online car rental company Lift.

DCMS Chairman Collins concluded in the document that Facebooks problems include opening a data whitelist to third-party enterprises (without users consent), using users friend information for economic benefits, establishing reciprocity principles with other application developers, and refusing to provide data to competitors.

In addition, internal documents show that Facebook has discussed whether to give paid advertisers greater access to data and whether to restrict potential competitors from accessing Facebook user data.

On Dec. 6, Beijing Time, Facebook responded that it was usersfriends private information that Facebook changed its policy from 2014 to 2015. In some cases, if necessary, Facebook allows developers to get a list of usersfriends. Its not a friends personal information, its a friends (name and profile photo) list. For whitelists, Facebook says whitelists are a common practice when testing new features and functions with limited partners. Similarly, whitelists are often used to help partners transit applications during platform changes to avoid application crashes or to interfere with user experience.

Zuckerberg also wrote on Dec. 6, Beijing Time that the content released by DCMS was only part of the internal discussion and shared more background of the discussion. Zuckerberg said Facebook launched the App Developer Platform in 2007, but allowed it to require expensive support. On the PC side, Facebook can support operating costs by displaying advertisements next to App, but on mobile devices, App will occupy the entire screen, so a new model is needed to support the platform. At that time, we had a lot of internal discussions, and finally we decided to continue to provide the developer platform for free. And developers can choose to buy advertisements according to their needs. But it needs to be clear that this is different from the sales peoples data. We never sell anyones data.
