Policies/TOS, same thing. It's called fast and loose with data. It was always inevitable that someone wouldn't play nice by his rules.

You use these services for free.
You give them this data.
Their business model revolves around this data, it's what helps bring in the money.
They're free to use it as they please IMO, which by association includes selling or giving to 3rd parties.

Don't like it, don't use the service.
If you 'have' to use the service, less is more.
Don't put anything out there (whether posts, profile or private data) that you wouldn't be OK seeing on the front page of your local newspaper.

That's all fine and good, but it's also very healthy to hold them under scrutiny. When that stops then bad becomes worse and we do a disservice to the uninformed by keeping them in the dark. Public accountability goes a long way.

Except the issue isn't that they were selling your data. They have privacy terms you agree to when using the service, and FB was violating those terms.
