Business Digest: Groups ask FTC to look at Facebook

A Washington-based privacy advocacy group and nine other organizations have filed a complaint against Facebook over the social network's latest privacy changes.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center said Thursday that it has asked the Federal Trade Commission to look into the changes Facebook made to its users' privacy settings and to force Facebook to restore its old safeguards. The changes, unveiled last week, include treating users' names, profile photo, friends list, gender and other data as publicly available information.

Among the groups joining in the complaint are the American Library Association, the Consumer Federation of America and the Center for Digital Democracy.
