Facebook Privacy Settlement Hits Bumps

The Recorder


The new privacy organization would have three directors: Larry Magid, an Internet safety advocate; Chris Hoofnagle, a Berkeley law professor; and Facebook executive Tim Sparapani. Kamber and Rhodes would be on the legal advisory board.

In the privacy groups' letter to the court, EPIC claims the new organization will likely become a "public relations organization for Facebook" and not protect Internet users.

Another privacy organization, the Center for Democracy and Technology, filed a letter with the court this week supporting the settlement.
