MeetMe Pays Up for Hiding That It’s Collecting Location Info

MeetMe was met with a barrage of bad press and sued by the City of San Francisco over its collection of location information from teenaged users. The City alleged that MeetMe used a “tangled web of ambiguous and misleading statements” to hide that it was keeping and broadcasting location information on its users. MeetMe was forced to settle the case, pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to the City, and promise to limit the data it revealed about its users.
