Herald Scoops Globe on Facebook’s Privacy Grab

For the past several days the hardtracking staff at Sneak Adtack has been chronicling Facebook’s new data-sucking policies, which essentially strip control of online information from the Faceherd.

The Boston Herald noted the change – in its usual minimalistic way – in Saturday’s The Ticker:

Facebook may end voting on privacy

Facebook is proposing to end its practice of letting users vote on changes to its privacy policies. But the social network said it will continue to let users comment on proposed updates.

Which of course means nothing, but why get technical about it.

Meanwhile, the Boston Globe has reported exactly nothing about what many believe is a major blow to online privacy rights.

Score one (more) for the feisty local tabloid.

    Boston.com did run a longer story about the Facebook changes online. But the Boston Globe — unlike the Herald — didn’t run any business briefs in today’s paper.
