Facebook Agrees to Cut Back on Its Snooping

One of the biggest violators of personal privacy has finally agreed to reduce its intrusive practices. Please note that it will REDUCE, not eliminate, invading your privacy.

Facebook has agreed to stop reading its users’ private messages for targeted ads, to settle a class action that claims it broke federal and state laws by doing so without consent.
