Lawmakers Want Privacy Info from Facebook

Two congressmen asked Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg for more details about the way applications on the social network handle user information, which has raised privacy concerns. U.S. Reps. Edward Markey (D., Mass.) and Joe Barton (R., Texas) sent Mr. Zuckerberg a letter expressing concerns that "third-party applications gathered and transmitted personally identifiable information about Facebook users and those users' friends."
