FTC-mandated audit cleared Facebook's privacy policies in 2017

FTC-mandated audit cleared Facebook's privacy policies in 2017

The app vacuumed up not just the data of the people who took it, but also - thanks to Facebook's loose restrictions - data from their friends, including details that they hadn't meant to share publicly. "You're the product", Birgitta Jonsdottir told RT's Caleb Maupin.

The Indonesian communications ministry was also seeking confirmation on technical measures to limit data access in Facebook and more information on an audit the social media company was doing on sharing.

German lawmakers will question a senior Facebook manager about data privacy in the wake of revelations that the personal information of millions of users wrongly ended up in the hands of political consultancy Cambridge Analytica. Only 270,000 Facebook users downloaded Kogan's app, but he was able to gather data about many of those users' contacts.

Despite two thirds of respondents believing that the Australian Cricket team is more trustworthy than Facebook, almost 70% of Facebook users who knew about the scandal haven't actually made any changes to their privacy settings. Meanwhile, Mozilla announced last month that it would be halting its advertising on Facebook until the site strengthens its policy on user data, while Elon Musk also deleted the Facebook profiles of his companies Tesla and SpaceX.

Facebook's trustworthiness however had taken a severe hit in the survey with only 25% of respondents saying they trusted the social media service as opposed to 60% trusting Google, 49% trusting Apple and 36% trusting Amazon.

Companies that buy and sell consumer data are preparing for increased scrutiny from US lawmakers after a scandal over how social network Facebook handles personal information, Acxiom Corp's chief executive said on Friday.

"The standard that we hold ourselves to is not just following the laws that are in place", Zuckerberg said. Instead he offered only an insubstantial "I'm sorry". The diplomat said that this issue is too important and advised Zuckerburg to accept the invitation.

While Facebook has already started this approach, devoting more resources to this effort would allow for a quicker and more intelligent sweep of bad content.

But the ACLU argues that users don't have full control over their information. "But Congress should not wait for Facebook to act".

Facebook said on Friday it would roll out a new feature created to make political advertising more transparent in time for a key German regional election, as it seeks to restore trust after a massive data breach.

"They should turn off ad targeting based on proxies for protected categories, such as gender or disability, in the housing, credit and employment context", she said.
