Complaint Filed with FTC Over Facebook's New Privacy Settings

submitted on December 17, 2009 by HouTex in "Member's Lounge"
A group of privacy groups, led by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), have filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission to investigate Facebook’s latest privacy settings. EPIC and nine other privacy and consumer groups argue that Facebook’s new privacy settings “violate user expectations” and “diminish user privacy.”

The settings, which on one hand give you more control over privacy yet on the other open your lives to the world, have raised a bit of a ruckus since being unveiled days ago.
These privacy groups want the FTC to thwart Facebook’s privacy changes with more consumer protections in place.

    My favorite response:
    If you don't know, as of today, Facebook will automatically start shaving your cat when you least expect it. To change this option, go to Settings --> Cat Settings --> Shaving, then UN-CLICK the box that says "Shaving."
