That is correct. At least in relation to the Cambridge Analytica breech. FB users wanting to play games or take quizes clicked "allow" at top of a sub screen which clearly stated they would be giving the app access to everything, personal information, private messages, friends list, etc ... those 3rd parties then sold the data to whomever they wished.
Being perpetrated by 3rd party apps provides a degree of separation for FB. Still a violation of trust in my eyes, even if not clearly stated in TOS.
No it doesn't, and this was something that Zucker'Borg' was clear on. Facebook is the one that decides to allow that app access to the data. It does not matter if the user clicks 'Allow', Facebook should never have let the app have that kind of control over the data that Facebook collects.
This is part of why Zucker'Borg' said they messed up and sold data. Charging an app to use their platform and allowing them access to information, is essentially selling the data.
