Facebook, Twitter, others push back against privacy

image Parents and other constituents are clamoring for it, but the state Legislature Friday once again turned its back on new privacy protections on social networking sites. At issue: a measure by Sen. Ellen Corbett (D-San Leandro) to require social networking sites to remove information when requested and let parents edit their kids’ Web postings to exclude information.

Add privacy: It got only 16 votes in the state Senate, with Republicans opposed and several Democrats abstaining. Oh, and did we mention that Facebook, Google, Twitter and other firms oppose it. PolitiCal has details.
