If you’ve been under a rock, then you haven’t heard the latest about the $9.5 MILLION slap on the wrist for Facebook and “big brother Beacon.”
From PC World:
“The proposed settlement, announced late on Friday, calls not only for Facebook to discontinue Beacon, but also back the creation of an independent foundation devoted to promoting online privacy, safety and security. The money for the foundation will come from a US$9.5 million settlement fund.”
As if the water of paranoia wasn’t muddy already…Thanks to Beacon, we can rightly compare consumer trust to the Ganges.
