“If protection of your personal data is important to you, we can only advise users to oppose the planned changes, and together with their friends to choose another operator,” said the Federation of German Consumer Organisations (VZBZ), an umbrella group for 42 German consumer associations.
The call followed an open letter to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg this week from Ilse Aigner, consumer affairs minister, threatening to delete her Facebook account in protest at the US firm’s “astounding” plans.
The VZBZ said that Facebook should have to ask its 400 million users worldwide for approval every time personal information is passed on to third parties, via an “opt-in” option.
