Does Facebook comply with itself?

At yesterday’s FTC Privacy Roundtable  held at UC Berkeley Boalt Hall, FTC Commissioner, Pamela Jones Harbour, disagreed with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s recent claim that people were much more willing to give up their privacy in exchange for Internet goodies.   In this SF Chronicle article, Tim Sparapani, director of public policy at Facebook, thought that its important to give users clear information and leave privacy decisions up to them. 

This sounds good but I don’t think  that the information Facebook provided about how the company uses people’s personal identification information qualified as clear.
