The Week: Media News - Facebook's privacy change

Facebook has been forced to make changes to its privacy policy following complaints about its handling of users' personal data.

As a result, it has promised to restrict the access of third parties who use the personal details of users to develop games and quizzes for the site, as well as agreeing to refrain from storing the e-mail addresses of those who are sent invitations to join the social networking site but do not sign up.
