Zuckerberg denies knowledge of Facebook shadow profiles

Mark Zuckerberg’s Ex Speechwriter Is Calling BS On His Claims Of Ignorance

Mark Zuckerberg’s Ex Speechwriter Is Calling BS On His Claims Of Ignorance

Facebook has said it first learned of the leak in 2015 and demanded Cambridge Analytica delete the data then, but has come under fire for failing to notify the public or the Federal Trade Commission before last month when a pair of news reports revealed Cambridge Analytica may still have the data in its possession.

The hearings that ended on Wednesday revealed no consensus among USA lawmakers about what kind of privacy legislation they might want to pursue, if any, and no timeline for action. We build enterprise software, although I don't consider us an enterprise software company.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg emerged largely unscathed Wednesday from two days of high-stakes hearings that saw U.S. lawmakers grill the billionaire over how the online giant feeds users' data to advertisers and chide him over privacy rights.

"It is clear from congressional testimony that self-regulation alone is not working and that regulatory oversight is needed in the United States in order to ensure safe social media".

"This is a good thing for users, because it allows them to receive more relevant advertising", explained one tech insider. Some of the features require more personal info than others; pictures, once posted, can potentially remain in the enormous cloud of internet data forever. That she'd just repeated information she'd read about rape, when telling her friends what had happened the next day, rather than drawing on her own experiences. And he's come a long way since he created the platform in his dorm room nearly 15 years ago. On top of regular accounts, many users created what is called a "finsta", or "fake Instagram".

Yes, numerous illustrious senators and representatives assembled devoted their limited minutes with the CEO of one of the biggest companies in the United States to addressing some very simple elements of how Facebook works (which is lucky for Zuckerberg because he had to concentrate most of his energy on modulating his face in the very natural way that humans do).

But even if the account is private, there's no telling who can view your information.

Facebook and Britain's Information Commissioner's Office is still investigating the Cambridge Analytica brief.

Whatever you put online will stay there, whether you like it or not.

Some of the lawmakers talked to Zuckerberg, 33, as they would their children or grandchildren, and were occasionally befuddled by the complexities of his company. Others asked the CEO about Facebook's restriction of a page belonging to pro-Trump vloggers "Diamond and Silk". Eshoo asked. "Congresswoman, I'm not sure what that means", Zuckerberg answered.

The response brought laughter, and for good reason.

"If I buy a Ford, and it doesn't work well, and I don't like it, I can buy a Chevy". Meanwhile, 35% claim to be using the social network less than they used to following the data breach.

The short answer is there really is none. Every click you make, every emoji you send, every photo you upload, every place you visit while the Facebook app is installed in your phone, on occasions even every call you make and message you send, is recorded by Facebook.

Whether Facebook is a politically neutral public forum.

There is no going back on our activity on social media sites, but there is certainly room for improvement regarding the security and infrastructure these companies provide. "But often times technology folks spend so much time thinking about what they can do, and little time thinking about what they should do", Johnson said.
