Roger Fingas reports:

The New York state government sent out a barrage of letters this week, asking for documents and other information from Facebook and the developers of at least 11 iPhone apps accused of sending private data to the social network.

Most of the named apps are health and fitness related, some better-known titles being Lose It!, Flo Period & Ovulation Tracker, and BetterMen: Workout Trainer. Also implicated though are two real estate apps, Trulia and Realtor.com.

One of the letters, directed to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, calls for information about all of the companies that have sent mobile user data through Facebook software in the past three years, according to the Wall Street Journal. The missive also asks for the categories of shared data, and a list of New York residents who had their data collected.
