SAN FRAN­CISCO: Face­book shared per­sonal in­for­ma­tion culled from its users’ pro­files with other com­pa­nies af­ter the date when ex­ec­u­tives have said the so­cial net­work pre­vented third-party de­vel­op­ers from gain­ing ac­cess to the data, it said on Fri­day.

The records in­cluded in­for­ma­tion about the friends of Face­book users, in­clud­ing phone num­bers and break­downs analysing the de­grees of sep­a­ra­tion be­tween peo­ple on the so­cial net­works, ac­cord­ing to a Wall Street Jour­nal re­port.
