Facebook has apologised to a woman who said her Facebook profile was “incredibly private” and that her name was not on the list of users.
The woman had told the website Buzzfeed she had “an intense fear” that her personal details would be published by Facebook and that it was her “duty” to refuse to share her name and photo.
Facebook has been criticised for its lack of transparency and for not being able to control what information people post on its platform.
But the woman had also asked for her name to be included on the Facebook profile she had set up in her name.
The company did not respond to Buzzfeed’s request for comment.
