The report also surfaced an interesting partnership between Amazon and Facebook, claiming that Amazon can obtain users' names and contact information through their friends.

Facebook also emphasised that the partnerships all required consent from users, generally through signing in to Facebook in the target app.
Facebook has responded by saying that no access was granted to third parties without user permission, but questions remain about whether users were fully aware of the level of access companies had to their data, or whether they knew they were agreeing to sharing private data.
Last week, it was reported that a bug may have exposed millions of Facebook users' private photos to third party apps. The movie-rating site Rotten Tomatoes and the music-streaming site Pandora weren't cut off until late summer, according to the Times.

In response to the Times report, Facebook's director of privacy and public policy, Steve Satterfield, said in a statement that its partners "don't get to ignore people's privacy settings". Given the well-documented spread of Facebook's tentacles throughout its meteoric rise, it was expected that numerous firms had access to user data.
In all, the report says, more than 150 companies benefited from Facebook's data-sharing practices.
