10 public-interest groups have asked the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate Facebook's various business practices. This demand comes right after two similar ones this week: two US congressmen asked the FTC to investigate how Facebook's cookies behave, and Ireland's Data Protection Commissioner has agreed to conduct a privacy audit of Facebook . Given that the social network's international headquarters is in Dublin, the latter is the more serious one as the larger majority of the site's users could be affected. The consortium of US consumer and privacy groups wants the FTC to look into allegations that Facebook tracks its users even after they log out of the social network , an issue the company says it has since fixed . They are also concerned about its "frictionless sharing" feature that is available on the newly launched Ticker and the upcoming Timeline and Open Graph rollout announced at f8 last week . Privacy groups ask FTC for Facebook investigation too
