Attorney General Lisa Madigan and her counterparts in several other states are demanding answers from Facebook about the company’s privacy protections. Madigan wants to know how much control Facebook has over data collected by third party developers, and what safeguards are in place to protect Facebook users. She notes the controversy serves as an important lesson.
Madigan is also trying to determine how many Illinoisans may have been affected. She says the next step may be to sue Facebook.
