Yahoo answers a class action complaint of privacy invasion by pleading that no one can call its scanning practices surreptitious.
“Yahoo’s scanning of emails has been the subject of media reports for years,” Peter Herzog of St. Louis wrote on Aug. 17.
He moved to dismiss a suit that Kaylynn Rehberger of Highland filed at U.S. district court in June, alleging violation of the Illinois Eavesdropping Statute.
Facebook’s privacy practices have always been controversial. It doesn’t charge its users–because its users are the product. The company sells information on its users, their social networks, services they like, and a multitude of other forms of information to advertisers and marketers. This gives Facebook a strong incentive to push privacy boundaries constantly, since the more personal information Facebook gathers on its users, the more money Facebook will be able to make by selling this information on to marketers.
