Facebook says it shared user data with  52 hardware and software firms, including some Chinese companies.  The  admission came in a 700-page document dump to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which released the information today.  The list  includes major tech companies like Amazon, Apple and Samsung.  It also  includes four Chinese firms that have been flagged by U.S. intelligence  as national security threats.  Facebook said it had ended its  partnerships with 38 of the 52 companies and will close the rest within  the month.
