Facebook is negotiating with the Federal Trade Commission regarding a plan to instill a privacy committee that will be overseen by an FTC assessor in effort to strengthen its privacy measures, The New York Times reports. This stems from claims regarding violations of a 2011 privacy consent decree by the company, which could also cost Facebook around $5 billion. The report comes from two people with knowledge of the talks; however, both Facebook and a spokesman for the FTC declined to comment on the matter.
