CDD Joins Facebook FTC Complaint

“Facebook’s new policy has seriously eroded the privacy rights of its members,” explained Jeff Chester, executive director of the Center for Digital Democracy (CDD).  “The leading social network has not acted responsibly.  It cannot be permitted to deliberately weaken the control its users have over their information,  just because it may boost its bottom line.  We call on the FTC to swiftly act on this complaint to protect the more than 100 million U.S. members of Facebook.”
