According to a report in the NY Times, the New York Attorney general's Office is planning an investigation into Facebook's harvesting of 1.5 million users' email addresses.
“Facebook has repeatedly demonstrated a lack of respect for consumers’ information while at the same time profiting from mining that data,” said Letitia James, the attorney general of New York, in a statement. “It is time Facebook is held accountable for how it handles consumers’ personal information.”
