FTC examining Facebook disclosures Updated: 2021-10-28 07:52:23 KST

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is investigating Facebook documents, which indicate the social media giant may have violated its 2019 settlement with the regulatory agency over privacy concerns.
According to the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, the FTC have started looking at international Facebook research that identified all ill effects of the company's product, and whether it violated the 2019 settlement agreement.
A Facebook spokesperson said the company is more than willing to answer the regulators' questions, adding it will continue to cooperate with government inquiries.
In 2019, Facebook agreed to pay a record 5 billion US dollars to the FTC to settle charges of privacy violations over the company's handling of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, where regulators found the company deceived its users about privacy protections while allowing third parties to harvest their data.
