The social networking website routinely gives sensitive information – including ages, interests and personal messages – to almost a million third-party firms worldwide.
Campaigners claimed that users were not made aware of exactly what would be done with their details.
The information is used to develop games and quizzes for the site.
But following criticism of the system, all third parties wishing to use the information will have to take more responsibility for ensuring users are made fully aware of how their personal information will be used.
