The Allegations Unveiled

According to the lawsuit filed by Maximilian Klein and Sarah Grabert, Facebook purportedly granted Netflix access to user data via the Inbox API. This arrangement allegedly allowed Netflix to tailor content recommendations based on private messages, with Facebook receiving bi-weekly reports on user interactions for targeted advertising purposes.

Implications and Historical Context

The lawsuit suggests a special agreement between Netflix and Facebook, possibly influenced by personal ties between Reed Hastings and Mark Zuckerberg, adds NIX Solutions. Moreover, Netflix’s substantial advertising investment on Meta platforms adds another layer to the perceived collaboration. This controversy echoes previous scandals, notably the Cambridge Analytica debacle, underscoring persistent concerns over data privacy within the Meta ecosystem.
