Apparently It Was a ‘Shocker’

Two weeks ago, when Moves announced their acquisition by Facebook (with a happy little exclamation mark in the headline):

For those of you that use the Moves app — the Moves experience will continue to operate as a standalone app, and there are no plans to change that or commingle data with Facebook.

Again, yesterday:

Moves, the fitness-tracking app recently acquired by Facebook, has changed its privacy policy to allow broader sharing of user data, including with Facebook.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away:

“I am altering the deal. Pray I don’t alter it any further.”
