    Not so hot on the redesign of users' profile pages

    In an attempt to turn them into some kind of Facebook-lite, Yahoo! has revamped users' profile pages, including publishing their age based on the (in my case false) date of birth I entered while signing up back when people still cared about Yahoo!.

    Shame they didn't think to provide any way for users to correct their age or, more desirably, stop it being displayed to the world altogether - especially considering no-one was ever asked to provide consent for it to be shown.

    I'm not an expert on such matters, but surely the Data Protection Act has some rules against companies deciding to publicly publish user data for which consent was never given?
