Facebook, which has described the Six4Three case as baseless, said the released communications are misleading without additional context, but did not elaborate.

A United Kingdom parliamentary committee has published 250 pages worth of Facebook documents, including emails sent between CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other senior executives.

Facebook allowed some companies to maintain "full access" to users' friends data even after announcing changes to its platform in 2014/2015 to limit what developers' could see.

Also, the league said tickets will have an "affordable price" but the ticket price range was not announced. Instead, McMahon will spend $500 million on XFL within the first three seasons of the league.

Though filed under seal and redacted in the lawsuit, Collins said the material needed to be made public because "they raise important questions about how Facebook treats users' data, their policies for working with app developers, and how they exercise their dominant position in the social media market". But the facts are clear: "we've never sold people's data".

In one email, dated January 23 2013, a Facebook engineer contacted Zuckerberg to say that rival Twitter Inc. had launched its Vine video-sharing tool, which users could connect to Facebook to find their friends there.

Collins said last week that he would release the emails and that he was free under United Kingdom law to do so. The files were seized by United Kingdom authorities just over a week ago when Ted Kramer, founder of USA software firm Six4Three, was in London.

The comment was part of a conversation with Lessin about how to generate revenue with the platform, how to use Facebook data to boost those earnings and how to ensure that such a strategy didn't undercut the company's growth. Their publication was accompanied by a note from Chair of Parliament's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee Damian Collins summarising his findings. "It is not clear that there was any user consent for this, nor how Facebook decided which companies should be whitelisted or not".

In this bombshell dossier, Facebook's staff discuss rolling out an app update which lets users upload call and text information to help the social network recommend friends they might know. A subsequent email suggests users wouldn't need to be prompted to give permission for this feature to be activated.

The documents had been sealed by a California court. It deliberately made it harder for users to be aware of this happening in order to avoid bad PR, the MP stressed.
