A report released Tuesday gave the world’s top tech companies failing grades when it comes to data privacy and freedom of expression. The New America Foundation think tank review graded companies such as Facebook, Google, and Microsoft on their policies for privacy and freedom of expression based on an exhaustive analysis of their user agreements. The report found that no single company scored an aggregated grade above 65 percent, while only six of the 16 surveyed companies scored at least 50 percent. The project, Ranking Digital Rights, also found that all firms failed to offer basic disclosures about privacy and censorship, signaling what little control users have over their posts on tech companies’ platforms.
