Last week, California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris announced that Facebook became the seventh company to sign the Joint Statement of Principles. This agreement is intended to strengthen privacy protections for consumers around the world who use online applications on smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices. The agreement effectively extends California’s privacy protections beyond mobile apps to include social apps in Facebook’s App Center.
In addition to signing the Joint Statement, Facebook will participate in a mobile privacy practices advisory group convened by the Attorney General’s Office and the California Office of Privacy Protection.
