Facebook Delays Planned Policy Changes
SOCIAL NETWORKINGSeptember 6, 2013
Following heat from six major consumer privacy groups, Facebook says it will delay planned changes to its privacy policies, Los Angeles Times reports. The coalition asked the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to block the changes, arguing they would make it easier for Facebook to use user data to endorse advertisements without their consent. "We are taking the time to ensure that user comments are reviewed and taken into consideration to determine whether further updates are necessary, and we expect to finalize the process in the coming week," Facebook said in a statement.
