Non-users in the spotlight as Facebook privacy concern grows

The ACLU is pushing US lawmakers to enact broad privacy legislation including a requirement for consent prior to data collection.

While a series of actions by European judges and regulators are trying to curb some of the powerful targeting mechanisms that Facebook employs, federal officials in the United States have done little to constrain them - to the consternation of American privacy advocates who say Facebook continues to test the boundaries of what is permissible.

By clicking the "Ads" tab, users can scroll down to see a list of "advertisers who uploaded a contact list with your info", which could include a phone number, full name and email address.
