Facebook Shared User Data With Over 150 Companies

A New York Times Investigation has revealed that Facebook agreed to share data with over 150 companies including Amazon, Microsoft, Netflix, and Spotify. Some of these companies even had access to private messages of Facebook users. Most of these agreements are not ongoing, but it has been revealed that Facebook continued to share data even after those agreements ended. Facebook said that an error caused the data to continue to be shared. Facebook also says that the data collected by the companies was not used in unethical ways. This definitely isn’t the first time Facebook has been accused of sharing data. Earlier this year, they were found guilty of sharing data to Cambridge Analytica who used the data to influence the 2016 election.
