Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Facebook, Inc., FTC File No. 0923184

Interesting that before the 30-day comment period is even over, Facebook has implemented a new format, TIMELINE, which violates one's privacy even more . Facebook's new formats need to be OPT-IN, not opt-out. I oppose Facebook's ability to universally change formats which affect my privacy without my consent, and to put the onus on the Facebook user to go through years of photos/posts/etc. to ensure privacy, rather than first ensuring privacy, and then allowing the Facebook user to opt-in to a format like TIMELINE. Please reconsider EPIC's recommendations before settling with Facebook. The settlement should be delayed while the privacy implications of this new format are reviewed.
