The Verge reports Facebook is ending its default scan of user faces and has released its new Face Recognition privacy setting. The setting discloses the social network's facial-recognition use more clearly while giving users more control of uploaded images. Facebook plans to notify users of the setting and turn it on for those who choose not to respond to the notification. Meanwhile, Business Insider reports U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., believes Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg should "be held personally accountable" for the social network's privacy missteps. Also, MediaPost reports a U.S. District Court is allowing a privacy suit over alleged unlawful phone data collection by Facebook to proceed.
