Excerpt from "FTC, Facebook Reach Settlement Over Privacy Violations"

Two years after announcing changes to its privacy settings that angered consumers and resulted in a complaint filed with the Federal Trade Commission, Facebook has reached a proposed settlement with the agency.

Under the consent agreement, the social network must receive express consent from users before their information is shared beyond the privacy settings they had established, is banned from making any further deceptive privacy claims, and is subject to biennial audits of its privacy practices for the next 20 years.

Please see full issue below for more information.
