Facebook suspends several apps over leaked user ID numbers
According to the Wall Street Journal, Rapleaf transmitted this data to a dozen advertising companies, including Google's Invite Media. All 12 companies involved in this leak say that they didn't keep or use the Facebook ID numbers. Rapleaf's defense is that no names were shared, and that the ID numbers were included accidentally. It looks like Facebook is taking your privacy -- or the company's valuable data, if you're cynical -- pretty seriously this time.
