Facebook has again admitted to improperly sharing user data with third-party companies. 

The social media giant vowed to crack down on how much information was sent to independent app developers back in 2018 but has repeatedly failed to do so.

In a blog post, Konstantinos Papamiltiadis, vice-president of  Platform Partnerships at Facebook, revealed a few sparse details about the latest issue.

He said around 5,000 apps had recently received data they should not have, including email addresses, birthdays, language and gender of users.

Facebook says the issue was fixed after it was discovered, but did not state when it was found, how it went undetected for two years, or how many users are impacted.

MailOnline has approached Facebook for comment.

In 2018, the social media giant announced it would be putting in restrictions on its previously uninhibited flow of user data to app developers.

This included shutting off the data stream to an app developer if a user did not log in to their product within 90 days.
