Kennedy: Unanswered questions in Facebook privacy issue

View stats on my Linked In for Congress v Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg's second-in-command runs Facebook's operations and oversees its advertising business, placing her in a almost unrivaled role of responsibility when as many as 87 million Facebook users had their data siphoned by Cambridge Analytica, a British firm with ties to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. It refuses to go the way of Wikipedia, which was blocked in its entirety after refusing to edit or remove entries that the Turkish government deemed unlawful under the country's Internet Act.

And Facebook seems to have finally admitted it. Facebook complied. Facebook hasn't released a transparency report covering restrictions after June 2017; how much content has been removed since then?

Over the past half-decade, Swiss authorities have sent 361 data requests to Facebook, mostly related to the tracking of potential terrorist activities.

Rob Sherman, deputy chief privacy officer for Facebook, told CNBC it would "appreciate the opportunity to answer questions the FTC may have". Companies can also match their information on what they purchase in stores - that box of cereal at the supermarket, for example - and marry it with Facebook account information.

Mr Grassley's panel is the third United States congressional committee to seek out Mr Zuckerberg's testimony in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the Associated Press reports.

The escalating crisis over Facebook's handling of users' personal information has some people asking: Where was Sheryl Sandberg? The data he transferred is utilized to make shadow profiles for both Ijaz and Sadia - so that if either goes along with, they will be recommended Ali as a companion. None of the good changes the company announced in recent weeks will truly hurt Facebook because it hasn't revised its economic engine: all that data, and unfettered use of it without informed approval of Facebook's citizens. The US is still far away from any comprehensive regulation; and with Zuckerberg wriggling out, we will probably have to bear FB for some more time in its present form. Any violations of the 2011 agreement could subject Facebook to fines of $41,484 per violation per user per day. About 70% of US internet-users surveyed in January by market-research firm Kantar Millward Brown said they thought online adverts were more intrusive now than they were three years ago.

"It's always been like this unfortunately", said Mr Hardy.

So you think that you're pretty smart because you never signed up for a Facebook account.

"The biggest growing segment for these social media platforms is the youth, and they grew up with this, so they know all their data is being collected, and they know they don't have privacy", said Detert. "I think it is unfortunate that it took place, but necessary for us to reach this particular crossroad to put some degree of regulation in place", he said, adding that it would also impact on privacy policies of other major online players such as Google, Apple and Amazon. Although only 270,000 people completed the quiz, the app was able to exploit the way Facebook held data to get at information about millions more. Facebook failed to alert individual users that their data had been improperly harvested until this month.

"So, Facebook had lacked policies for their app developers".

The general strategy has been to charge for special features, so users feel like they're getting something extra for their money.
