Submission + - Congress to Facebook: let's be friends (skunkpost.com)

crimeandpunishment writes: A powerful member of Congress is asking Facebook and Google to cooperate with any government inquiry into their privacy policies. Democrat John Conyers of Michigan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, sent letters to both companies Friday. Both Facebook and Google have come under increased fire over the way they protect users' personal privacy.

Conyers didn't indicate if the judiciary committee would conduct its own investigation.
