Facebook bans financial broker

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

(WFLX) - Facebook has put a stop to a financial broker who's been paying several application designers for your personal information.

The company has placed those developers on a six-month suspension.

Facebook didn't identify the data broker, but says it has reached an agreement with Rapleaf. Rapleaf agreed to delete all Facebook user ids in its possession and "to not conduct any activities on Facebook in the future".
