Privacy policies should be in place for any website that collects information that could potentially identify an individual. Everything from email addresses to location is considered personally identifiable information. Facebook has privacy policies in place. The problem? It’s not exactly the easiest thing to understand.
During the congressional meeting, Rep. Eshoo (D-California) compared Facebook’s privacy policies to a “minefield” suggesting that the information is not easy to navigate. She went on to indicate that the language is so unclear that everyday people likely struggle with understanding what is exactly happening with the data that they provide to the site.
