Facebook Sued Over Call and SMS Data Collection

Facebook is being sued over housing discrimination

Three Facebook Messenger app users have filed a lawsuit claiming the social network violated their privacy by collecting logs of their phone calls and text messages.

Facebook is reeling from a scandal over its handling of personal data. Because Facebook hasn't learned anything from the last two weeks, the blog post reads as a detailed explanation about why Facebook is right and everyone else is wrong, rather than any kind of acknowledgement that perhaps scraping millions of unwitting users' non-Facebook data from their phone could be problematic. This helps you find and stay connected with the people you care about, and provides you with a better experience across Facebook. They could also opt to exclude people with certain interests, including disabled veterans, disabled parking permits, or learning English as a second language.

"Instead, the FHA aims to ensure that applicants or prospective tenants (prospects) and current tenants don't get treated differently because of certain characteristics or attributes they have", legal experts at the site write.

To do that, Android users will have to go to "home", tap your profile picture then tap "people". To check this, he reinstalled the Massager app, but after installing for several times he found the data again.

He added that he didn't use the Messenger app from 2015 to 2016, yet the device has the data of the year. The suit comes as the social network is scrambling to deal with an worldwide crisis over the misuse of data belonging to 50 million of its users.

Facebook says its apps started collecting this information. Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg personally apologized, but the social media giant has remained mired in controversy regarding how third parties can access user data. However, their response to inquiry does not justify the reason behind data collection of texts and calls for years.

To test its case, the NFHA submitted a fictitious ad in San Antonio for an apartment for rent, using Facebook presets that allowed them to exclude "parents with toddlers", "parents with preschoolers", "parents with early school-age children", "parents with teenagers", and "parents with preteens", while targeting "men".
