Privacy Commissioner releases study of six social networking sites

The Privacy Commissioner of Canada has posted a study of the privacy practices of six social networking sites. The report was written by Jennifer Barrigar and delivered in February 2009. I suppose it took that long to translate into both official languages. See: Social Network Site Privacy: A Comparative Analysis of Six Sites - February 2009.

Hi David.

While it does take a while to translate a long document, we held off on releasing the report largely to avoid the appearance that we had pre-judged the outcome of the Facebook investigation.
