Privacy companies wade into Facebook

Written by Nick Farrell



Two ask them to change their policy

Two privacy groups have asked Facebook to abandon changes to its terms of service that would allow the company to share user data with recently acquired photo-application Instagram.

Electronic Privacy Information Center and the Center for Digital Democracy is also worried that the social notworking site is going to eliminate a user voting system and loosen email restrictions within the social network. The changes raise privacy risks for users and violate the company's previous commitments to its roughly 1 billion members, the two groups said.

In a letter which was published on both sites yesterday, they groups said that Facebook's proposed changes implicate the user privacy and terms of a recent settlement with the Federal Trade Commission. By sharing information with Instagram, the letter said, Facebook could combine user profiles, ending its practice of keeping user information on the two services separate.

Facebook, of course, is saying nothing.
