Facebook gave some companies, including Netflix and Airbnb, preferential access to user data in 2015 as it limited services for most others, according to company emails and presentations released by a British lawmaker.

The 223 pages of communication from 2012 to 2015 between high-level Facebook employees, including founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, show how the social media company debated generating revenue by selling access to data, tracked and fended off rivals and braced for potential blowback as it moved to capture more user data.

Damian Collins, a Conservative member of British Parliament, made the documents public on Wednesday after demanding them last month under threat of sanction from Six4Three. The defunct app developer obtained them as part of its ongoing lawsuit in California state court alleging that Facebook violated promises to developers.

A tip of the hat to Mr. Damian Collins for releasing these documents. I didn’t think they’d see the light of day. Facebook is annoying politicians now, especially out foreign. They’re getting tired of condescending non-answers.

Perhaps the politicians will start taking our privacy seriously, and make some legislation. Like we pay them to do.
