Facebook Settles With F.T.C. Over Deception Charges

http://j.mp/uAzFMh  (FTC)

    The social networking service Facebook has agreed to settle Federal
    Trade Commission charges that it deceived consumers by telling them
    they could keep their information on Facebook private, and then
    repeatedly allowing it to be shared and made public. The proposed
    settlement requires Facebook to take several steps to make sure it
    lives up to its promises in the future, including giving consumers
    clear and prominent notice and obtaining consumers' express consent
    before their information is shared beyond the privacy settings they
    have established.
