Facebook gave Spotify and Netflix access to users’ private messages

What about the latest stories of the New York Times about Facebook's comprehensive data agreements? The story, which describes company's partners, runs on internal documents, reports on the first non-negative aspects of business partnerships with companies including Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Spotify, and Netflix. In some cases, companies had access to data for years when it was cut.

Documents and interviews, along with about 50 former jobs of Facebook and its corporate partners, also show that Facebook has access to data despite some of its companies. They have also raised questions about whether
Facebook gave Spotify and Netflix access to users’ private messages

Facebook has regretted about the consent of the 2011 agreement with the Federal Trade Commission, without sharing it with clear permission without sharing the user's data to the social network Has been stopped

In addition, the matters described in the documentation benefited more than 150 companies - most of them also benefited from tech enterprises, online retailers and recreational sites, but also automated and media organizations. Their applications searched a million people for a month. Deals, which were all active in 2017, the earliest history of 2010. Some years were still in effect.

The story, which reports on both Times and Wall Street Journal reports this year, describes the partnership of different data partnerships, some of whom were unhappy with the disappointment of consumers. These include:

Despite giving access to user's Facebook contacts and calendar entries, even if the part of the partnership still exists, the database was disabled. Apple told Times that it was not known that he had special access, and the user never missed the data described.

Subscribe to Amazon names and contact information in partnership, which is currently wounding. Amazon will not be discussed that he used more data than he used to "properly". On Twitter, Kashmir Hill of Germodo estimates that Amazon used data for fraudulent review.
Access to Bing, Microsoft Search Engine, user's friends names and other profile information. Microsoft said that it has deleted the data. Facebook says that the only user's data set to "Public" was accessible to Microsoft.

Spotify, Netflix, and Royal Bank of Canada have the ability to read private facebook messages.
The term described in the timing story has fallen into three types of Facebook partners. First of all they are Facebook who call "integration" and they connect to custom apps that are ready for OEMs such as Facebook BlackBerry.

Since they were integrating with the phone operating system, they require a wide range of data with OEMs. They have got so much attention this year, but I think most users will be properly understood that their personal data is being changed with phone making in their cases.

Other types of partnerships, which are represented by the Bang Agreement, are now part of a immune program known as "instant personalities". This feature, which started in 2010, chose every fast user by default. He allowed all of his partners to personalize their own services and were willing to share whatever they knew about Facebook. Yelp, for example, will show visitors in which their Facebook friends used the site.

When the program started, the program became critical criticism, and finally it was killed in 2014. But according to Times, Bing has access to data by 2017, and two other companies have yet to reach this summer. On one hand, this was all the public figures - the name of the friend, the city, and the others, publicly marked.

On the other hand, there is a missile failure of Facebook to turn off access to data, which has added the Cambridge Analysis Database Privacy Scandal: A company has said that it has a group of users' data 2016 Presidential Elections in an attempt to use it instead of deleted

The final type of partnership is basically more than one deal made in Facebook years. All of these voices were Facebook's matter that was built with companies including Spotify, Netflix, and Royal Bank of Canada, which allowed the users to access and write user's Facebook messages. This was the result of a wide-scale written API, which began in 2010 as a preliminary (pre-messenger) attempt to prepare a messaging platform.

n Spotify case, for example, the company plugged into your chat window to send songs to your friends. It may be possible that a criminal employee mischief in a person's message, but there is no example in the timing story.

There are other intriguing details in the Times Times, including information that Yahoo and Russian search company Andrew maintains both data access
