Did Facebook help with fake accounts in senate election?

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks as he prepares for the Facebook Communities Summit in Chicago. The social media giant was pounded by criticism over revelations that a firm working for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign misused users’ data

She said Facebook is open to regulation and other measures that could help re-establish trust with users.

Zuckerberg still held more than 8.2 million Facebook shares after the most recent sale this month, the filings show. People post about leaving Facebook, on Facebook, clearly showing that they're too busy continuing to post to actually take the initiative to leave the site they claim to dislike so much.

The world's largest social media network is under growing pressure from governments, investors and advertisers.

Even after you've deleted the app from Facebook, it may already have your personal information.

It's basically the history of everything you've done on Facebook.

You shouldn't have to wade through complicated privacy settings in order to ensure that the companies with which you've entrusted your personal information are making reasonable, legal efforts to protect it.

"Users need to guard their privacy; use of social media is not compulsory". Anyone who took that quiz willingly gave the app developer not only a remarkable insight into their own psychological state, but also to all of their own information on Facebook, to their list of friends and, in turn, a significant amount of their personal data.

"The hearing will examine the harvesting and sale of personal information from more than 50 million Facebook users, potentially without their notice or consent and in violation of Facebook policy", chairman Representative Greg Walden, a Republican who chairs the panel, and Frank Pallone, the top Democrat, and other committee leaders wrote in the letter.

"Facebook is most welcome here, why not?" The Foundation stated that it was uncomfortable with the revelations and had made a decision to pull its ads from Facebook in response.

"That's how they were able to get the data of 50 million people from only 270,000 installations", Mislove said.

Using the small, downward-facing arrow on the upper-right-hand corner of your page, head to your apps setting page on Facebook, where you can manage which apps you've given access to your information. Users were paid to take a personality test who agreed to the academic use of the data. He also said in subsequent interviews that he would be willing to testify before Congress and it might be OK if the social network gets regulated.

It's also incredibly hard to track-there's virtually no way to know if a piece of data has been duplicated, nor how many times.

A Healey spokeswoman said Monday that the attorney general's office had opened a civil investigation on the matter, and had been in touch with Facebook to better understand the scope of the data impacted as well as whether it included any MA residents. Zuckerberg noted Facebook narrowed the access new apps had later in 2014.

Many of us here at The Griffin use Facebook to keep in touch with high school friends and far away family members, because Facebook is a great way to share life events and accomplishments.
