Facebook emails show it cut deals with advertisers for data access

SFGate Wednesday, 5 December 2018 ()
LONDON — Emails and other internal Facebook documents released by a British parliamentary committee on Wednesday show how the social media giant gave favored companies like Airbnb, Lyft and Netflix special access to users’ data. The documents shine a light on Facebook’s internal workings from roughly 2012 to 2015, during a period of explosive growth as the Menlo Park company was navigating how to manage the mountains of data it was accumulating on users. The committee said the documents show Facebook entering into agreements with select companies to allow them access to data, even after it made policy changes that restricted access for others.
