Facebook data leak increases to 87 million users

Facebook data leak increases to 87 million users

In the aftermath of President Trump's election, many speculated whether Zuckerberg's carefully orchestrated road trip, which included photo-ops with farmers in Wisconsin, firemen in IN, and college football coach Nick Saban in Alabama, was part of grander political ambitions or a way to make amends after a tough year for Facebook's image.

It's a proposal that is winning favour among technologists.

Lujan used this example to dispute Zuckerberg's previous claims defending Facebook's privacy controls.

Nevertheless, she also said that "working with Facebook has certainly got better" in recent years. This comes after reports surfaced that a Russian agency had been giving out information gathered from users' information.

The monthly subscription price would need to offset Facebook's ad earnings. The consolidation of advertising market power amongst the incumbent internet companies has begun even before data protection regulations are in force. The ads were featured nationwide in publications such as The Guardian and us. In a similar vein, Google's response to the GDPR has been to remove all personal identifying data from its AdSense program, which effectively renders the Google Network publishers' ad inventory worthless as they can no longer target ads, and ultimately hurts smaller publishers far more than it hurts Google. LinkedIn, the social network for job-seekers, lets paying users see who has viewed their profile.

The current FTC investigation will look at whether Facebook engaged in "unfair acts" that cause "substantial injury" to consumers.

That's because the core function of Facebook - connecting people - is something that can be done elsewhere without having to pay.

"What is important for us as a media house is the ongoing monitoring of how people are using our platform and the proxy of social media of our overall platform to control things like hate speech".

"So those apps are way more unsafe than people think".

"The whole fantasy that people care about privacy or they're desperate to get out of ad-supported networks is ridiculous", said Clay Shirky, a researcher on the social and economic effects of internet technologies at New York University. The social media doesn't need to know these details, which you might have used as passwords for various services.

"The biggest growing segment for these social media platforms is the youth, and they grew up with this, so they know all their data is being collected, and they know they don't have privacy", said Detert. "If you're Gen-Z, you really don't care". What kind of changes would you like to see? "They might take a few steps here and there, they might go through and change some permission, but we're talking about 2 billion users".

Zuckerberg made it clear in his Capitol Hill testimony that "there will always be a version of Facebook that is free". In the United States, social networks are considered public spaces; information shared there is covered under the "third-party doctrine", meaning users can not reasonably expect privacy regarding the data their service providers collect about them. Enormous security costs, especially relative to competitor counterparts, may just be one of the many effects of such a shift.

Then there are the technical challenges.

The problem though is the way Facebook defines who data belongs to. Zuckerberg replied with a flat no - but that did not stop Larry Bucshon, a Republican congressman from IN, from bringing up the topic again the following day.
