ProtoGeo Oy, the company behind the Moves app for iOS and Android that tracks your daily steps and activity, announced today that it has been acquired by Facebook.
Remember a short while ago that Facebook got in hot water for using people’s names and profile photos in “Sponsored Stories” advertising? While that lawsuit is still going on, Facebook has updated their site policy and, starting September 5, by using Facebook, you are giving them permission to use your image in ads again. There is sadly no way to opt-out of this. What can you do about it?
Some may think that spending too much time on Facebook is a bad thing, but a recent study shows that social influence can sometimes do some good.
