The Electronic Privacy Information Center, or EPIC, is complaining to the Federal Trade Commission that Facebook’s new information sharing and privacy policies are unfair and deceptive to users.

EPIC and a handful of other groups are urging the FTC to make Facebook turn back the clock on the recent changes, which were designed to persuade users to share more personal information on the wider Internet.
