The New York Times yesterday published a story about how Facebook shared user data with select corporate partners, including contact lists and private messages.

Facebook gave Netflix and Spotify the ability to read users’ messages, and other tech giants including Microsoft, Amazon, and Sony access to data on users’ friends, according to hundreds of internal documents obtained by the paper and interviews with dozens of “former employees of Facebook and its corporate partners.”

I looked on my phone and was surprised that I hadn’t already deleted the app (I never use it) but finally did so this afternoon.
