Facebook shares rise as Zuckerberg soothes investors

The 911 MB download took approximately five minutes to complete. As Constine notes, "Facebook never publicly disclosed the removal of messages from users' inboxes, nor privately informed the recipients". But as I begrudgingly identify as a millennial, I've always been aware of Big Brother.

While it's good that Facebook is taking some concrete action, it comes across as a convenient way to lessen the backlash by making it look as if Zuckerberg was just a beta tester for the tool.

"When we received word that this researcher gave the data to Cambridge Analytica, they assured us it was deleted", she said.

No notifications were sent to those who had messages deleted, nor was there any disclosure that such a thing was even possible.

How can you punish a child who stuck a hand in the cookie jar when the cookie jar was left open?

There have been dozens of examples over the company's long history, but the most recent may be the most scandalous: A shady firm of "political consultants" secretly harvested data belonging to as many as 87 million Facebook users without their knowledge, and then used that data to influence the 2016 presidential election.

A foreign entity could conceivably use such information to influence elections or stir up discord - exactly what Russian Federation is alleged to have done, using Facebook and other social media, in the 2016 presidential elections. Next to it we will show "paid for by" information. The answer varies from day to day. However, some of the measures didn't take effect until a year later, allowing Cambridge to access the data in the intervening months. Those cookies have yet to crumble, I guess. Facebook needs to be regulated, not just in India but across bthe world and maybe just maybe, Facebook's board needs to find a better person to run the company. All it does is make it seem like he was testing a new feature.

As alpha geek Dave Troy points out, you can target an individual for an ad on Facebook if you know their user ID number.

Facebook confessed to TechCrunch that they have been doing this for a while.

My web dossier can not be too thrilling, it is enough to scratch the surface of my personality, interests and online routines, just like everyone else.

Longtime ProPublica privacy reporter Julia Angwin, who has exposed many of Facebook's failures, talked to regulatory experts to compile this list of reforms that might begin to fix what is broken about the tech industry and user data.

It's far from certain what action, if any, the GOP-led Congress and the Trump administration might take against Facebook, but the company will nearly certainly oppose any efforts to regulate it or the technology business sector more broadly. Human rights organizers have been complaining about the company's lack of a serious reporting system for years.

Breaking five days of silence, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologized for a "major breach of trust", admitted mistakes and outlined steps to protect user data in light of a privacy scandal involving a Trump-connected data-mining firm.

Though the social network already complies with much of GDPR's fundamental practices, Zuckerberg's comments come at a time that user consent and awareness is at an all time high.
