Rights group seeks e-union protection for Facebook users
| by Naina Khedekar |
Internet Without Borders, the Rights Group suggests tht an e-union should protect Facebook users. The social site lately dished out its market debut plans. The Rights Group believes that Facebook’s $100 billion flotation is owing to its abuse of the right to control personal information. "Is this valuation linked to the business's software and infrastructure or to the data that Facebook gathers and exploits with or without its 900 million users' consent?, " the group's head, Archippe Yepmou, asked journalists in Paris. The social site has been valued at $104 billion and the Rights Group believes that this sum has been based on the social site’s ability to collect private data.
