Zuckerberg begins Facebook's case for the defence

Facebook Privacy Scandal Congress

He said Facebook had considered the data collection "a closed case" and had not alerted the Federal Trade Commission.

When you run the largest social network in the world, security is a big priority.

Yesterday Facebook shares dipped, but are still up three percent overall since Zuckerberg began his testimony on Capitol Hill.

When the Facebook CEO appeared before a US Senate joint committee hearing on Tuesday to answer questions on Facebook's scandals, there were no real upsets or scandalous remarks. Many lawmakers still don't fully grasp the technology.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said this week that Facebook offers a tool that lets people see and remove all of the information they put into the social media site.

Zuckerberg studied computer science at Harvard before leaving to move Facebook to Paolo Alto, CA. Rep. Billy Long (R-MO) even relayed a question from the vloggers: "What is unsafe about two black women supporting Donald J. Trump?"

"Most of what I found was not at all surprising", he said.




Plan II freshman Ross Trivisonno said though he was angered about the data leak, it would take much more for him to delete Facebook, a necessity on par with email or text for him.

As of January 2018, statistics aggregator Statista reports that Facebook serves roughly 214 million users in the US.

"Every time that someone chooses to share something on Facebook ... there is a control", he said.

Sen. Gary Peters, (D) MI prefaced his question by saying it's a conspiracy he hears all the time, then he asked "For the record just to be clear, because I hear it all the time including from people on my staff; Yes or No, does Facebook use audio obtained from mobile devices to enrich personal information from its users?" And there is the information that Facebook uses to make money and for advertising purposes. Yet you seem to have no privacy.

You might never join Facebook, but a zombie you - sewn together from scattered bits of your personal data - is still sitting there in sort-of-stasis on its servers waiting to be properly animated if you do sign up for the service.
You didn't know how many apps you need to audit.

Since the data privacy scandal relating to Cambridge Analytica the company had suffered great losses and while the company has not yet regained these losses, the turnaround suggests traders are less anxious about the heavy-handed regulation of tech companies than they were before. And yes, we were all paying attention. The political research firm harvested the personal information of roughly 87 million people to target American voters, using a personality quiz called "This Is Your Digital Life" that scraped the Facebook data of you and your friends.
