Facebook settles suit over privacy settings

(CNN) - Facebook says it is settling with the Federal Trade Commission over charges it deceived you.

The charges go back to 2009, when Facebook changed its privacy settings to make public information that users may have deemed private.

This included their list of friends, for example.

The FTC says the settlement requires Facebook to get people's approval before changing how it shares their data.
