SOCIAL NETWORKINGFebruary 8, 2012
An Austrian privacy activist group has said Facebook will release more information about the data it collects from users, Reuters reports. The comment came following a six-hour meeting on Monday between Europe V. Facebook and executives from the social network. "We have a fixed commitment that we will finally know what Facebook stores in the background," said Max Schrems, who heads up the activist group, adding, "that means a list of all categories of data that are clicked on by users." While Facebook has declined to comment specifically on Schrems' statements, the company has said it was "a very constructive meeting," the report states.
