As part of its analysis of Facebook in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the British government seized a huge cache of the company‘s centralized documents. Despite Facebook‘s best efforts, those abstracts are now online. And the account they paint is pretty.

You can peruse all of the almost 250 pages on Parliament’s website. While the whole thing is a alluring read, here are a few highlights:

  • Zuckerberg advised charging developers for user data as early as 2012, saying “…if we make it so devs can accomplish acquirement for us in altered ways, then it makes it more adequate for us to charge them quite a bit more for using platform” [sic]
  • The aggregation whitelisted several apps, including Netflix, Airbnb, and Lyft, alms them access to advice not accustomed other developers
  • Zuckerberg okayed the abatement of Vine’s access to the accompany API, acceptation users could no longer find their Facebook accompany on the app; the email in which he said “Yup, go for it” is dated the same day Vine launched on iOS
  • The aggregation advisedly buried capacity about how much data it would aggregate from Android users to avoid PR fallout

My admired is in Exhibit 172, in which then-product administrator Michael Lebeau predicts what the media fallout would be if the aggregation didn’t bury its Android permissions:

Screenshot of the scary Android permissions screen becomes a meme (as it has in the past), propagates around the web, it gets press attention, and active journalists dig into absolutely what the new update is requesting, then write belief about “Facebook uses Android update to pry into your clandestine life in ever more alarming ways — account your call logs, tracking you in businesses with beacons, etc.”

The abstracts themselves have gone through an odd journey. A aggregation called Six4Three created an app called Pikinis, which amid Facebook users’ swimsuit photos. The app went out of business in 2015, when Facebook evidently cut off access to users’ accompany data. Six4Three after sued Facebook on the basis it allegedly planned to cut off access for some time and hadn’t warned developers. During the lawsuit, these abstracts were baldheaded and sealed under careful order.

Ted Kramer, managing administrator of Six4Three then catholic to the UK with the abstracts in his control (it’s not clear how he came to acquire them or if he was even declared to). Kramer was then served with orders by the Parliament‘s Digital Culture, Media, and Science Committee, who accepted he hand the abstracts over. According to , when questioned by a California court about who could have tipped off the authorities about his arrival, Kramer named a British journalist; we’re not sure yet if that’s true.

Now Damian Collins, the Chairman of the Committee has appear the entire cache of abstracts to the public, saying in a tweet:

They raise important questions about how Facebook treats users data, their behavior for alive with app developers, and how they exercise their ascendant position in the social media market.
