Commissioner Releases Facebook Probe Results
SOCIAL NETWORKING—CANADAApril 5, 2012
Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart on Wednesday released results from three investigations into complaints filed about Facebook, The Canadian Press reports. Stoddart said the site has made improvements in some areas but needs to build privacy in from the beginning when introducing new features, according to an Office of the Privacy Commissioner press release. Stoddart said that the company is "providing clearer, more understandable information to members on various personal information handling practices," but added, "Despite these general improvements, we were disappointed that Facebook hadn't anticipated the widespread privacy concerns that followed the launch of its 'friend suggestion' feature."
