Zuckerberg Gets Another Call to Testify to Congress

Facebook not facing the music for breaching users' trust

Facebook not facing the music for breaching users' trust

In addition to Congress, attorneys general in NY and MA are investigating Facebook's handling of personal data.

Facebook suspended the Cambridge academic last week for sharing data he gathered separately and passed on to data firm Cambridge Analytica, which is not linked with the university. Facebook which is globally used and is it also the fifth world's most valuable brand, is now in a situation that a moment is started like #deletefacebook. And if we find that developers misused personally identifiable information, we'll ban them from our platform and we'll tell the people who were affected. The company laid out a multipart plan created to reduce the amount of data shared by users with outside developers, and said it would audit some developers who had access to large troves of data before earlier restrictions were implemented in 2014.

This is valuable, predictive information, which Kogan later provided to Cambridge Analytica.

"The latest revelations regarding Facebook's use and security of user data raises many serious consumer protection concerns", Walden and Pallone said in a joint statement.

Only 300,000 Facebook users responded to Kogan's quiz, but that gave the researcher access to those people's Facebook friends as well, who had not agreed to share information, producing details on 50 million users. You can control which app has access and what type of information they can have access to. You'll have to contact the app individually and ask for your data to be removed.

"Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham has said she was looking at whether personal data was acquired in "an unauthorised way", whether there was sufficient consent to share the data, what was done to safeguard it and whether Facebook acted robustly when it found out about the loss of the data."
"I think it's changed people's perceptions".

Facebook is working on a "way for people to know" if their data was accessed by the Cambridge Analytica survey, the company said in a post.

Issuing a warning to the Guardian Media Group ahead of its publication of an exposé of mass Facebook data harvesting was not the wisest move, one of the social networking giant's senior executives has said.

The public tends to get numb to this steady drumbeat of bad news, says brand strategist Rachel Brand.

But you may be surprised how many apps like Airbnb or Venmo you've logged into through the social network over the years.

Wondering why Facebook seems to be taking baby steps to address the biggest scandal in its history? If you're not quite ready to delete Facebook, deactivating your Facebook is an option. "This isn't by far a complete list because Facebook not only tracks your usage while on the site, but it also tracks your usage while you're just cruising around the Internet".

"They were telling me what they had to sell was more advanced than anything I had ever seen before", GOP strategist Mike Murphy told The Los Angeles Times.

You can click around to see what Facebook already claims to know about you under Your Interests - under the headings of Business and Industry, News and Entertainment, Hobbies and Activities, etc. It has also claimed responsibility for Trump's 2016 win, though political insiders have pushed back on that assertion.

What you won't get are photos other people shared with you, even if you've been tagged.
