By Baselinemag Print this article Print

Former Facebook privacy officer Chris Kelly has joined the ranks of public officials taking Facebook to task over privacy issues. Kelly, who is running for attorney general for California, called for his former employer to reiterate its commitment to sharing user information only with their prior approval.

Kelly is not the first politician to call for Facebook to make changes recently. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) made headlines in late April when he requested the Federal Trade Commission set privacy guidelines for social networks. At the moment, Kelly is in the middle of a heated campaign for state attorney general as the date of the primary election - June 8 - approaches.
