Facebook Gave Data Access To Chinese Firm Flagged By US Intelligence

Facebook has data-sharing partnerships with at least four Chinese electronics companies, including a manufacturing giant that has a close relationship with China’s government. The agreements gave private access to some user data to Huawei, a telecommunications equipment company that has been flagged by American intelligence officials as a national security threat.

Facebook gave access to the Chinese device makers along with other manufacturers (including AmazonApple, BlackBerry, and Samsung) whose agreements were disclosed by The New York Times on Sunday.

Whether Huawei is a threat or not isn’t really the concern.  This one’s on Facebook, once again, for giving access to user data to others. According to CNBC, the four partnerships between Facebook and the Chinese firms remain in effect, but Facebook officials said in an interview that the company would wind down the Huawei deal by the end of the week.

At this point, anyone still trusting Facebook to protect your data is absolutely insane. But of course, the social media giant made these agreements for themselves, to boost their own financial status and ability to collect data on everyone. The deals gave Facebook an early foothold in the mobile market starting in 2007. This was before stand-alone Facebook apps worked well on phones, and allowed device makers to offer some Facebook features, such as address books, “like” buttons and status updates.

Facebook officials said the agreements with the Chinese companies allowed them access similar to what was offered to BlackBerry, which could retrieve detailed information on both device users and all of their friends.  This included religious and political leanings, work and education history and relationship status.

Huawei used its private access to feed a “social phone” app that let users view messages and social media accounts in one place, according to the officials. Facebook representatives said the data shared with Huawei stayed on its phones, not the company’s servers; but it’s up to you if you want to believe the tech giant.

Senator John Thune, the South Dakota Republican who leads the Commerce Committee, has demanded that Facebook provide Congress with details about its data partnerships. “Facebook is learning hard lessons that meaningful transparency is a high standard to meet,” Mr. Thune said.

      Only Low IQ idiots post their personal info on FraudBook to get hacked. You deserve everything you get and more.

      FB CEO ZUCK THE 3ew screwed you. Bwhahaha

  3. Kevin2 says:

    At a minimum something similar to the “Sherman Anti Trust Act” needs to be implemented upon the media breaking them up; they’re too powerful.

  4. Wojo says:

    Sounds like treason to me. Time for a reboot!!!

  5. Kevin2 says:

    I don’t know if there is a line where Facebook ends and the NSA/CIA begin. They have a very close relationship.

  6. The Pentagon ran an operation called Life Log. When Life Log was shut down, Facebook began. They were very similar programs. The implication is that Facebook is a continuation of the government program.

    • Archivist says:

      That’s similar to a Microsoft project called MyLifeBits, except MyLifeBits was meant to be a personal database for your own access only. It aimed to eliminate all paper from a person’s life and record everything, including internet activity, media consumption, and communications.

      Here is the link to Microsoft’s page on the project:

  7. Instead of using the intelligence agencies to harass Trump, they could have tracking down intelligence leaks in and out of the government. Political games shouldn’t be played at the expense of the people.

  8. Jim in Va. says:

    Crack down on Facebook, put em out of business and hold the head man responsible.

    Obumhole was thick with Zuckerberg. They both worked together to
    carefully dice info to only allow globalist, NWO, and communist ideals
    to filter onto websites.
    Goo gle redirected anything negative towards Obumhole.
    Obumhole asked for people to tattle on anyone who supported
    opposing views….. even had a web site where they could
    report anyone with negative views about him. Then Obumhole had
    his minions set out to FRY THEIR PHONES, Blackberries,
    and computers!!!
    It was a NASTY WAR FOR THE TRUTH!!!!

    (And, the vacuous, Tiger Woods way he talks.)

    For my profile pic, I use a camera effect, which their apps say they don’t like. To me, it looks like me, but, I guess, it doesn’t work for biometric purposes. Maybe, they dislike the “exif” data, or lack of it.

    I didn’t give information, which could realistically be used for banking purposes, but any grandma’s apple pie or cheesy craft projects, etc. can be scandalized by some politico. It doesn’t matter how goody you are, if they want to blackball you.
