Facebook Admits Major Data Breach, 100 App Developers Accessed User’s Data from Groups

The Infinite Brief
In a blog published, Facebook’s director of platform partnerships Konstantinos Papamiltiadis admitted roughly 100 app developers retained access to group members’ personal data, despite recent rule changes.

Papamiltiadis said there was “no evidence of abuse,” but that at least 11 of these developers accessed the data in the last 60 days.

Facebook is asking them to delete all relevant data.

He didn’t name any of the apps, but said they were “primarily social media management and video streaming apps, designed to make it easier for group admins to manage their groups more effectively and help members share videos to their groups.”
