Facebook May Update Privacy Policy to Satisfy Regulators

In response to a request made by the Irish data protection agency, it has been suggested that Facebook may update its privacy policy.

Included in the request was for Facebook to publish ‘more detail on how long data can be held, what happens when accounts are deactivated and what kinds of ads could be shown to users even when they’re not on Facebook’s pages’.

“We’re adding more examples and detailed explanations to help you understand our policies,” Erin Egan, Facebook’s chief privacy officer for policy, said in a blog posting on the site.
