Democratic Congressman: "Looks Like Zuckerberg Lied To Congress"

• by Tyler Durden

 "Sure looks like Zuckerberg lied to Congress about whether users have "complete control" over who sees our data on Facebook," adding "This needs to be investigated and the people responsible need to be held accountable."

The Times reported Sunday evening that Facebook gave at least 60 major device manufacturers access to user data over the last decade - including Apple, Amazon, BlackBerry, Microsoft and Samsung - as part of a data-sharing partnership program which allowed the companies to integrate various features such as messaging and "like" buttons into their products.

The agreement has allowed manufacturers to access information on relationship status, calendar events, political affiliations and religion, among other things.
