Podcast: Privacy advocate, Facebook official speak out

Larry Magid talks with Electronic Privacy Information Center director and Facebook chief privacy officer about the recent Facebook terms of service controversy.

As is now well known, Facebook angeredsome of its users and some privacy advocates when it recently changed its terms of service to give itself the right to permanently retain user information even if a user deletes an account.

That policy was rescinded after an uproar and a likely federal complaint from the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), a Washington-based privacy watchdog group.

To try to better understand the issue, I spoke with EPIC's executive director, Marc Rotenberg, as well as Facebook's chief privacy officer, Chris Kelly.
