Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes declined to say if the site made any decisions about altering its contentious privacy policies. A few weeks ago, Facebook announced some new features which according to some users invade their privacy.
In an e-mailed statement Mr. Noyes just said, "We had a productive discussion where comments were made and questions were asked and answered."
The meeting was held lawmakers and privacy watchdogs objecting to new features, which were introduced by the site without users’ explicit consent.
Last week, the Electronic Privacy Information and a number of other consumer groups took the privacy issue to the Federal Trade Commission.
But, Facebook is arguing that it is giving users more control over privacy.
Fcaebook, which has more than 400 million users around the world, has a huge treasure chest of users’ personal information that could be very valuable to advertisers.
