The Mistakes of Facebook
According to the Federal Trade Commission, Facebook has made the following mistakes:
In December 2009, Facebook changed its website so certain information that users may have designated as private – such as their Friends List – was made public. They didn’t warn users that this change was coming, or get their approval in advance.
Facebook represented that third-party apps that users’ installed would have access only to user information that they needed to operate. In fact, the apps could access nearly all of users’ personal data – data the apps didn’t need.

Mistakes continued....
Facebook told users they could restrict sharing of data to limited audiences – for example with “Friends Only.” However, selecting “Friends Only” did not prevent their information from being shared with third-party applications their friends used.
It promised users that it would not share their personal information with advertisers, but it did.
Facebook claimed that when users deactivated or deleted their accounts, their photos and videos would not be accessible. However, Facebook allowed access to the content, even after users had deactivated or deleted their accounts.
