Facebook Says it Gave 61 Companies Access to Data After 2015 Policy Change

Facebook revealed this week that it had given 61 companies one-time access to user information after it had applied restrictions way back in 2015.

In a 747-page document submitted to US lawmakers, Facebook said that it gave companies including AOL, Nike, UPS and dating app Hinge a “one-time” six-month extension to comply with its policy changes on user data.

However, it was noted that the revelation only came months after the social network’s privacy scandal that involved the personal data of millions of users around the world.
