The Wall Street Journal: Facebook reveals dozens of companies that received special access to user data

Facebook Inc. disclosed it gave dozens of companies special access to user data, detailing for the first time a spate of deals that contrasted with the social network’s previous public statements that it restricted personal information to outsiders in 2015.

The deals with app developers, device and software makers — described in a 747-page document released to Congress late Friday — represent Facebook’s most granular explanation of exemptions that previously had been revealed by The Wall Street Journal and other news organizations.

The disclosure comes as lawmakers have demanded accountability at Facebook for allowing companies access to data on its billions of users without their knowledge, and questioned how far the universe of firms extends.
