Despite Privacy Uproar, Facebook Users Aren't Changing Their Privacy Settings

Despite Privacy Uproar, Facebook Users Aren't Changing Their Privacy Settings

Users can also remove the ones they don't want to have connected to Facebook anymore. The updates will be rolled out globally over the next two weeks. This fact should raise questions about other mediums that have access to our information that we are unsuspecting of, like Facebook applications.

According to Tech Crunch, the changes are focused on centralising a variety of controls that were previously located in other places. This was revealed by Carolyn Everson, Facebook VP of global marketing solutions who said, "We have not seen wild changes in behavior with people saying I'm not going to share any data with Facebook anymore".

By now I think we've all heard that Facebook was hacked by a tech genius who worked for Cambridge Analytica, which is almost always called a "Trump affiliated company", and they did this to steal 50 million user profiles which they then used to help Trump and the British Brexit campaign to psychologically manipulate voters through targeted ads.

Earlier this week, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was in Washington to testify at the Senate Intelligence Hearing.

Harper breaks bat, muscles out 406-foot HR
And in most cases, the ball ekes over the fence in a short part of the ballpark instead of soaring 406 feet to right-center. The pitch jammed Harper, and the Nationals slugger broke his bat cleanly in half on the swing.

"This kind of data collection is fundamental to how the internet works", Facebook told Reuters in a statement. Once they did that, the company already had some data about that person's social circle and when one of the people in that user's contact information chose to create a Facebook account, friend suggestions are ready to be presented.

"I feel uncomfortable (using Facebook), but that feeling actually encourages me to be careful about what personal information I put on social media", said Dylan Wen, a freshman communication studies major.

During his testimony, Zuckerberg responded to a question asked by United States representative that his company tracks the data of non-Facebook users for security purposes. While you are in your general settings, you can even download a copy of what data Facebook has collected. "It certainly is scary, but you should think that hacking is bad, not Facebook". For Mr. Chen, Google has over a thousand times more data on him than Facebook does. The notification, which appears on top of your News Feed, redirects users to Settings where they can see the apps and websites they've logged in using Facebook. It has been reported that when Zuckerberg first learned of the Russian meddling in the USA election, his statement was: "That's weird", obviously the disposition of someone who is clueless about the extent to which his tool could be used for malicious intents. Fox Business reported that the CEO wants to reassure its users that Facebook is an "idealistic and optimistic company".

However, for those who are - the future could go one of three ways: join the #DeleteFacebook movement, watch what you're sharing and be very careful "granting permissions" to apps and software - whether on your phone or otherwise, or just make sure you're paying for the services you're consuming.
