Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., said The New York Times report appears to show Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg lied about the company sharing users' data.

"Sure looks like Zuckerberg lied to Congress about whether users have 'complete control' over who sees our data on Facebook," Cicilline, the ranking member of the House Judiciary antitrust committee, said in a tweet.

The congressman was referring to a Sunday report in The New York Times report that said Facebook set up data-sharing partnerships with device makers including Apple, Amazon, BlackBerry, Microsoft, and Samsung.

The Times report said Facebook began closing out the partnerships in April, but questioned whether Facebook violated a 2011 consent decree with the Federal Trade Commission.

Ime Archibong, Facebook's vice-president of product partnerships, said the company disagreed with the Times report.

"Contrary to claims by The New York Times, friends' information, like photos, was only accessible on devices when people made a decision to share their information with those friends," Archibong wrote in a post about the Times report.
