Facebook, Twitter Take Action Against Babysitter-Rating System

Facebook and Twitter are taking action against an automated babysitter-rating system reported on by The Washington Post, saying the service broke the social networks' rules on user surveillance and data privacy. Predictim, a California-based start-up, analyzes babysitters' online histories, including on Facebook and Twitter, and offers ratings of whether they are at risk of drug abuse, bullying or having a “bad attitude.”
