The updates will be rolled out globally over the next two weeks. Users of Facebook clicked a non-malicious link in their Facebook feed to go to an app called This is Your Digital Life, which promised and indeed delivered a personality quiz app developed by a professor at Cambridge University. Chris Calabrese, vice president for policy at the Center for Democracy & Technology, said that Facebook needs to reveal what it is doing with all of this information. Yes, we understand the Facebook users that proactively sign in are part of that platform, but you're following Facebook users even after they log off of that platform and application, and you are collecting personal information on people who do not even have Facebook accounts.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg took home just $1 for his annual base salary a year ago, but the company shelled out almost $9 million on his security and private planes.
Facebook has already stated that it will use reports from community along with other signals to send stories to fact-checking organisations.
This programme would reward people with first-hand knowledge and proof of cases where a Facebook platform app collects and transfers people's data to another party to be sold, stolen or used for scams or political influence.
Facebook uses "all of the data that's in the user's personal profile", including public and private posts, photos, videos, likes, contacts and even messages, according to Rodgers.
Ambedkar's birth anniversary celebration today
While Rahul Gandhi tweeted paeans - "Paying rich tribute to Baba Saheb Ambedkar on his birth anniversary". He ensured protection of your rights.It is the duty of the government to take care of your rights.
"Congressman, if people flag those ads for us, we will take them down now", he said.
With all the extra travel Zuckerberg may do to answer to various governments for his company's role in the recent Cambridge Analytica data scandal, that expense isn't likely to shrink. It has been reported that when Zuckerberg first learned of the Russian meddling in the US 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.
"We require these security measures for the company's benefit because of the importance of Mr. Zuckerberg to Facebook", the filing states.
The ACLU is pushing US lawmakers to enact broad privacy legislation including a requirement for consent prior to data collection. Obviously, these data would have come from using Google products: gmail.com, YouTube, Chrome, Google+, Hangout, the Android operating system on your phone, and perhaps any data supplied to apps that run on your phone.
Zuckerberg has stated his willingness to comply with GDPR for its European users but has stopped short of guaranteeing similar protections for users in the U.S. and elsewhere. So when you delete something, the platform just removes it so it's not visible or accessible on Facebook! "Major organizations have been hacked before, like the IRS, but because social media is such a new thing and it's fun, we focus on the bad things when they do happen".
