SOCIAL NETWORKINGMay 14, 2012
Forbes reports on changes being made to Facebook's data-use policy, including how it reserves the right to serve ads to users outside of Facebook and a clarification on how long it keeps user data received from advertisers and third parties. Users can provide feedback on the site, or join a video chat with Facebook Chief Privacy Officer Erin Egan this afternoon. The updated policy also provides explanations on how cookies work on the site, what data developers receive when a user downloads an app and what the company does with users' data after deleting an account.
