California [United States], June 9 (ANI): Facebook engaged in special deals with specific companies to allow them access to user's friends data, a new report has revealed.
The social networking giant recently confirmed that it stopped allowing companies access to data in 2015, Engadget reported.
However, a new report on the Wall Street Journal states that the company continued to allow access to users' friends list and related details.
Facebook said that it only allowed access to third party companies for improving user experiences and not to the friends' private information such as photos and interests. (ANI)
