Facebook And Device Makers In Fresh Data Sharing Scandal.
Facebook for over a number of years has been sharing user data with Apple, Amazon, Samsung, Blackberry, Microsoft and others.
The report reveals that Facebook has been sharing the data of users, and the friends of their friends, with at least 60 device makers.
However, some of these gadgets giant have responded to the news.
BlackBerry responded to the Times reports, saying it does “not collect or mine the Facebook data of [its] customers.”
Apple, on the other hand, said it stopped giving its iPhones that access since September 2017.
Microsoft said Facebook data gotten by its users remained on their devices and was not uploaded to their servers, while Samsung and Amazon failed to respond to the Times’ question.
