Episode Description 
On our show today, we examine the impending settlement between the FTC and Facebook over the way the social network handles its privacy settings. Under the agreement, Facebook would need to get a user's permission before using data in a way that's different than how the user originally agreed to when the data was used. We talk to Ryan Calo of Stanford University's Center for Internet and Society, and Chris Hoofnagle, a law professor at UC Berkeley, about what this means for users.

The FTC is bringing some changes to Facebook

The popular social networking platform is about to face some new restrictions by the Federal Trade Commission around privacy. We'll see if users 'like' them.
