Watchdog satisfied Facebook data not leaked
THE body charged with overseeing the use of personal computer data has said it believes Facebook users' privacy had not been breached.
In a report, the Commission Nationale de l'informatique et des Libertés (CNIL) said it had no reason to believe a problem with the websites had made public the private messages or personal information of Facebook users.
The French government has said it would speak to Facebook managers and ask for an explanation of rumours that some users' privacy had been broken.
At the time Facebook denied there was a problem, and following the talks CNIL said it was satisfied that the messages on display were public and were 'wall to wall' types meaning they were not private.
