Facebook Used All of Their Power and Influence to Spy on Everything About Users, All User Phone Activity and Their Friends
The Facebook phone App records your phone calls and texts. They used their dominant position to get App companies to fully trade their customer data in exchange for access to Facebook data. They used an Israeli commercial spying company to find out what apps users downloaded and how they used them.
Here is the Specific Wording of the Summary of the Report
1. White Lists
Facebook have clearly entered into whitelisting agreements with certain companies, which meant that after the platform changes in 2014/15 they maintained full access to friends data. It is not clear that there was any user consent for this, nor how Facebook decided which companies should be whitelisted or not.
2. Value of friends data
It is clear that increasing revenues from major app developers was one of the key drivers behind the Platform 3.0 changes at Facebook. The idea of linking access to friends data to the financial value of the developers relationship with Facebook is a recurring feature of the documents.
