    Sadly the actually published portion of the emails is absolutely minuscule, making it hard to draw useful conclusions.
    e.g. Exhibit 84 is absent in full (probably the most technically interesting, and the one supporting the supposed 'continued access' to Friends data), so lacks details of the "Hashed Anon All Friends API" that was offered as a selective fallback for the removed blanket access. A definition of "App Friends" also be useful: it's clearly a distinct list from from the regular Friends list (as "non-App Friends" is a defined concept), and from context it appears that unless a user was friends with another user both on Facebook and within the external app (i.e. with Facebook absent the app developer would already have an independent Friends list linking those two users) they would only receive a nonresolvable hash of friends rather than a resolvable hash (i.e. you could tell User Alice and User Bob were both friends with xyxgyxy, but you would not know xyxgyxy was User Eve).
