Facebook has said in an American lawsuit that it is a media company that makes ‘editorial decisions’. That is at odds with earlier statements by Facebook, in which the company correctly said that it is a tech platform and not a media company.
Former start-up Six4Three sued Facebook for stopping access to user data in 2015. Six4Three created a Facebook app, with which users automatically took pictures of friends to recognize images of people in swimwear. The former start – up thinks that Facebook should not have denied access to data, the social network does not agree with that.
