Turkey fines Facebook for leaking user photos

Turkey's state-run news agency says the country's data protection agency has fined Facebook 1.650 million Turkish lira ($270,000) for contravening data laws, the New York Times reports.

The Turkish Personal Data Protection Authority said Friday the fine was imposed over a software bug that exposed millions of Facebook users' private photos to third-party app developers.

The authority ruled the social media company had not taken the required technical measures to protect the data and failed to notify authorities about the bug in a timely manner.
