MySpace To Sell User Data

OnlyJedi writes “Hot on the news of Netflix canceling its latest contest over privacy concerns, news has spread that MySpace is going the opposite direction. Apparently, the one-time leading social network is now selling user data to third party collection firms. From the article, the data that InfoChimps has listed includes, “user playlists, mood updates, mobile updates, photos, vents, reviews, blog posts, names and zipcodes.” InfoChimps is a reseller that deals with individuals and groups, from academic researchers to marketers and industry analysts. So if you’re worried about your data on MySpace being sold off to anybody with a few hundred dollars, now’s the time to delete that little-used account.”
