Facebook is Still Selling User Data

And those who unwittingly defend it

Facebook announced new terms of service that help clarify what it does and doesn’t sell about its users. On the one hand, it’s great that it’s clearer than before. On the other, it maintains its remarkable claim in the TOS is that “we do not sell and will not sell your information” while better explaining to us how they do just that.
