Facebook published its answers to questions by the German parliament: 22 pages, mostly non-answers, but this is *very* interesting: Seems to me that FB states it shares personal information on users with third parties in ways that are not publicly known.

Wonder if & co might feel moved to hop on a train and press for a meeting with Zuckerberg while he's taking the air on the continent. I hear he may be in Paris too...
