I. Report: Some MySpace Games Sharing User IDs With Advertisers
In the wake of recent revelations over privacy concerns with Facebook apps, a new report finds some MySpace apps -- including some games -- are sharing user ID data with advertisers, in violation of the social network's terms of service.
A Wall Street Journal report cites Wonderhill's GreenSpot and RockYou's RockYou Pets games among those apps that transmit a MySpace user ID to advertisers as part of a web address sent when a user clicks an ad.
While MySpace user ID's are not necessarily linked to a user's real name and personal information, advertisers could use this user ID information to access any information the user has made publicly available. Advertisers including Google, Quantcast and Rubicon said they were not actively using the data.
A RockYou spokesperson told the Journal that the user ID sharing in their apps was an inadvertent result of a third-party service that the company uses, and that the company is "reviewing all third-party providers to ensure compliance with our platform partners' terms of service."
Last week saw many Facebook applications, including games published by LOLApps, taken down from the popular social network for more wide-reaching breaches of user privacy.
