Facebook’s Timeline TensionOctober 4, 2011 No Comments
Facebook’s Timeline feature has been a focus of controversy since it was announced by CEO Mark Zuckerberg at the company’s f8 developers’ conference last month in San Francisco.
Privacy advocates immediately raised concerns.
A coalition of 10 privacy and consumer groups has written to the Federal Trade Commission pointing out the security and privacy risks posed by Facebook features like Timeline.
Security experts have also reportedly warned that the wealth of data put out on Timeline will be very useful to stalkers and cybercriminals. That data could also be useful for government surveillance.Featured Articles
