Facebook will not make any announcements about privacy changes at the meeting, said a source familiar with the situation yesterday.
The meeting comes a few weeks after Facebook unveiled a variety of new features designed to make its service integrate more easily into other websites.
Some of the changes, including a so-called “instant personalisation” feature that automatically imports Facebook users’ personal profile information into the music site Pandora and the user-review site Yelp, have provoked sharp criticism among privacy advocates.
Earlier this month, the Electronic Privacy Information Centre and a coalition of 14 other advocacy groups filed a complaint to the US Federal Trade Commission blasting Facebook for disclosing user information to third-parties without the prior consent of users.
Several US senators have also recently expressed concern about Facebook’s privacy practices.
