Facebook to settle with NY State
October 16, 2007
It seems that NY State have decided to settle with Facebook over the child safety probe I blogged about a few weeks back.
There’s no mention in the Reuters story of exactly what the settlement entails, but Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said that he planned to hold a press conference on Tuesday “to announce a major development involving social networking Web sites.”
What could that be? A new law forcing social networks to better protect their users? A law forcing them to expose user data? Or maybe some kind of code of conduct that social networks will have to sign up to? My bet’s on a type of code of practice which if you don’t sign up to you get your ass sued!
