NEW YORK (AP) Facebook is at the center of another privacy furor, this one over its sharing of user data with device makers such as Apple, Amazon, Samsung and others over the past decade The social network acknowledges the data sharing deals, which it says it's according to a New York Times report it has struck with at least 60 device makers since 2007. But it says there's nothing scandalous about them. The arrangements raise a number of questions, among them whether Facebook failed to get the explicit consent of users before sharing their data. If so, that could place it in violation of a 2011 consent decree with the Federal Trade Commission. Facebook denies it shared user data without consent.
