Google today announced that it has agreed to new terms with the Federal Trade Commission over the botched launch of its Buzz social networking service and the resulting privacy violations. Google said that it has agreed to an independent review of its privacy procedures once every two years. It will also ask users to provide affirmative consent (i.e., users must opt in) before it changes how it shares user data. Google apologized, again, for what it calls a failure to meet its own standards. Buzz lets users share content via desktop browsers and mobile phones.
