Facebook seems to not get out of news regarding data sharing and privacy concerns. Once the New York Times reported last Sunday about the social media’s decade-old partnerships with roughly 60 device makers on data sharing without user consent, governments started scratching their heads.

American intelligence agencies are already scrutinizing Chinese companies partnered with Facebook, and now the Indian government is charging the social media giant. The country has asked to respond on the matter by June 20, according to a government statement reported today, June 7.

The statement reads: “The Government of India is deeply concerned about reports of such lapses/violations.” The Nation’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology is expecting a detailed factual report on the issue from Facebook.

As a refresher, Facebook did not waste a day responding to NYT’s report, coming up with alibis, and saying that no abuse of data was reported by the partnered device makers. The company has also disclosed that it is on a spree of ending the partnerships with Huawei ending this week.

Despite such efforts of the social media leader, privacy concern in today’s age of the internet is always a major issue, as the connectivity platform puts a wall between physical contacts of separate entities.

It will be interesting to see how Facebook responds to the concern of the country that has about 270 million users of the social media platform, the highest. Amazingly, that’s about 30 million more than the USA at second place in terms of being Facebook-populous.

Facebook is one of the leading tech players of today (and definitely, tomorrow), and it constantly contributes to the information technology industry, bringing innovations and conveniences for the users. We have often seen its commitment toward social aspects and standards, and we hope that its stand gets better soon regarding privacy concerns.
