    From AP.

    Privacy issues have dogged Facebook for years. It settled with the Federal Trade Commission in November over allegations that it misled users about the handling of their personal information. Google Inc., a big rival, agreed to a similar settlement eight months earlier.

    The latest ruckus happened when more than 30,000 German users posted that they were rejecting the company's proposed changes to its governing documents. But the changes amounted to nuanced revisions and clarifications of long-standing policies - not a major overhaul.

    Isn't the idea of a right to privacy, even the appearance of it in a contract, a nuance, not an absolute? At least, that's what I understand from reading published stories of what hackers do. Yes? So, what the complaint in Germany?
