Did Zuckerberg Lie? Accused App Developer Told Facebook Of Plans To Sell User Data, Report
[link to www.zerohedge.com (secure)]


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg might want to rethink his decision to snub the UK Parliament by declining to appear in person to offer testimony on the widening scandal surrounding its utilization abuse of sensitive user data for commercial purposes

Because, in a bombshell report published minutes before US markets close for a long holiday weekend, the Financial Times is alleging that the researcher whom Facebook has blamed for lying about his decision to collect and sell data gleaned from hundreds of thousands of Facebook users (and approximately 50 million of their friends) actually had every right to sell the data.

And the researcher, Dr. Aleksandr Kogan, even disclosed his plans to market the data in a contract issued along with an update to Kogan's app.

The problem is, Facebook approved the terms submitted by Kogan using an automated process for examining app upgrades - and none of the company's human employees bothered to manually override or reject this.
