Facebook kept 1222 pages of personal data over three years
Estimated reading time: 3 minute(s)Max Schrems wasn’t sure what he would get when he asked Facebook to send him a record of his personal data from three years of using the site.
What the 24-year-old Austrian law student didn’t expect, though, was 1222 pages of data on a CD. It included chats he had deleted more than a year ago, “pokes” dating back to 2008, invitations to which he had never responded, let alone attended, and hundreds of other details.
As you have probably heard there is a lot of talk about whether or not face-book deletes private files or “soft deleted conversations”, apparently they don’t. What’s you opinion on this?
