In recent post on this blog, I described some of StumbleUpon privacy risks. BBC Technology News now have article about privacy problem related to Facebook, another social networking tool. Under title Facebook faces privacy questions they talk that Facebook is to be quizzed about its data protection policies by the Information Commissioner’s Office. It says:
The investigation follows a complaint by a user of the social network who was unable to fully delete their profile even after terminating their account.
Currently, personal information remains on Facebook’s servers even after a user deactivates an account.
Facebook has said it believes its policy is in “full compliance with UK data protection law”.
We will see how this will be solved. Anyway, social networking come to its dark side because of increasing number of security and privacy problems.
