Privacy group files FTC complaint against Facebook for new privacy settings

Kim LaCapria

A group that advocates for internet privacy has filed a complaint (PDF) with the Federal Trade Commission over Facebook's new wide-ranging recent privacy changes.

Calling the action "the most significant case now before the Federal Trade Commission," the Electronic Privacy Information Center, or EPIC, said in a statement:

More than 100 million people in the United States subscribe to the Facebook service. The company should not be allowed to turn down the privacy dial on so many American consumers.

EPIC has been joined in the complaint by American Library Association, the Consumer Federation of America and the Center for Digital Democracy.
