Those companies were not named in the story, but the Times noted that Facebook has data-sharing partnerships with companies including Microsoft, Apple, Sony and Amazon.

It reports that both companies had data partnerships with Facebook that gave them access to the personal information of hundreds of millions of users.

"We are cooperating with investigators and take those probes seriously", a Facebook spokesman told the Times on Wednesday. "We've provided public testimony, answered questions and pledged that we will continue to do so".

Federal prosecutors are investigating data-sharing deals struck between Facebook and makers of mobile computing devices. The deals helped Facebook gain more users, according to the report, and its partners were able to access user data without obtaining consent.

But these partnerships also allowed third-party companies to get much deeper access to user data than it had previously made clear.
