How can the basis of posts liked say how good or bad of a driver you will be?Facebook has blocked plans by an insurer to view young drivers' profiles to help set car insurance premiums.
In a planned trial, insurer Admiral wanted new motorists' permission to look at their posts and likes to judge their safety as a driver.
Were a young driver considered to be low-risk, a discount would be offered.
But on the day of the planned launch, Facebook said that Admiral would not be able to determine discounts on the basis of Facebook posts and likes.
