Top Facebook Applications Transmit Personal IDs
A “Wall Street Journal” investigation reveals that many of the popular applications on Facebook have been transmitting information to Internet advertising tracking companies.
The “sent information” identifies user’s names and in some cases their friends. The issue even affects Facebook users who set their profiles to the strictest of privacy settings. A Facebook spokesman told the “Journal” the social-networking site is taking steps to quote, “dramatically limit” the information being exposed.
