Facebook Offers More Disclosure to Users

"Facebook, seeking to address concerns about the personal information it collects on its users, said Thursday that it would provide any user with more about the data it tracks and stores. "

Annie's take:

As it readies itself to go public, Facebook has been trying to conform to European data privacy laws as well as requests in this country for a greater level of transparency on the data it collects about its users. See the comment in the article that there are 80+ categories that Facebook collects data in, and that it is proposing to share only half of those categories in its new offer.
