Facebook and their privacy policies have become fairly famous over the past year, with the concerns over user privacy being in headlines for a good amount of time. Well, to show that they are watching out for their ever increasing user base, a statement from California Attorney General Kamala Harris confirms that they are the seventh company to sign the Joint Statement of Principles, which is put in place to enhance the privacy for users who use online applications on devices such as smartphones, tablets, and other miscellaneous electronics; according to CNET.
Facebook’s App Center which was just recently released was build using these principles, and requires every developer that has an app added to their App Center to include this type of policy. It’s good to see Facebook taking steps to protect it’s users.
What do you think? Was this just a business move or do they really care about your privacy? Do you use Facebook, and are you concerned with their privacy practices? Let us know in the comments.
