Facebook Privacy Change Is Subject of F.T.C. Inquiry
New York Times, September 11, 2013

Facebook, which has repeatedly tripped over its own feet when changing its privacy practices, has stumbled yet again.

The Federal Trade Commission said on Wednesday that it had begun an inquiry into whether the social network’s proposed new privacy policies, unveiled two weeks ago, violated a 2011 agreement with regulators.

(NOTE: there are no fictitious names or hidden metaphor's used in the preceding statement).
