Moves Changes Privacy Policy

Mere days after the fitness-tracking app Moves assured users about their privacy after its acquisition by Facebook, the company has changed its privacy policy to allow itself to share data with third parties. The Wall Street Journal reported the changes late Monday, which were pushed as an app update to Moves users.

Is anyone surprised that Facebook, a company built on having as much of your data as possible, would change the privacy policy of a new acquisition?

When I first heard Moves was acquired it made perfect sense. Now Facebook would have both a fitness/health app and a way to track user location 24/7 to better target advertising.
