Fine for Facebook for sharing friends info by South Korea data protection regulator

Facebook fined in South Korea for sharing user data without consent after it also turned in false or incomplete documents during the investigation. 
Yair Cohen, social media solicitor explains that when Facebook users logged into other third-party apps using their Facebook accounts, Facebook shared not only their information with the third-party apps but also information of their Facebook friends, who of course, had no idea that their information was shared, let alone were in a position to consent to the practice. 
The information was then used to tailor content and advertising to the unsuspected friends.
