Facebook Inc. has agreed to give users more control over the information they share with third-party applications, such as games and quizzes, in response to concerns raised by Canadian privacy officials.

Currently, people who wish to use such third-party software must agree to share all their data with the application. With the changes, the application will have to specify which categories of data it needs, so users can decide accordingly.
