I could almost feel sorry for Facebook. Yet another country's privacy chief is on its case about consumer privacy issues. First the Canadian Privacy Commission took issue with Facebook, then the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, and now Germany has joined the fight. v3.co.uk reports:
But I say "almost" because Facebook has brought all of this on itself. How many times in the past year has the social-networking site tweaked its privacy policies? And how many times has it responded to user complaints with something equivalent to "People aren't all that concerned about privacy anymore?" Apparently, someone is still concerned. In fact, several "someones" are still concerned, and some of them are quite powerful.
