Facebook to unveil dating feature

As you'll probably have discerned from the working of this, it only applies to people with Facebook accounts, and will do nothing to protect the privacy of people without accounts but who are still tracked via Like buttons and so on.

For example, we already know that the social network has plans to talk more on VR hardware in regards to Oculus, and the company's push towards Augmented Reality to go head to head against the likes of Google and Snapchat.

Mr Zuckerberg described this as a "major breach of trust" that must never happen again. "You have to make sure that they're executing well and bring in the leadership and train them".

Mark Zuckerberg may want to avoid visiting the United Kingdom for a while. "We therefore re-state our invitation to Mark Zuckerberg". "We didn't expect these coordinated information operations and the network of fake accounts".

The hours of Congressional testimony he endured a few weeks ago, in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which revealed that millions of Facebook users had their information used without consent in order to target political ads. This sparked a campaign urging Facebook members to leave the site and calls for tighter regulation over user data, especially as Facebook makes most of its revenue from advertising that is targeted at individual users based on their online activity. You'll then be able to clear that information on demand or prevent Facebook from being able to track and store that data going forward. He did not specify when exactly the process will re-open.

Facebook F8 is a conference held by Facebook nearly every year, which is intended for developers and entrepreneurs who build products and services around the platform.

But Zuckerberg suggested that Facebook would not slow down and wouldn't distance itself from developers as it prioritizes data privacy.

Zuckerberg said he felt deleting this information would make for a poorer experience, but that it was important for users to have better control.

"We're flattered that Facebook is coming into our space - and sees the global opportunity that we do", Match CEO Mandy Ginsberg said in an e-mailed statement.

He said users should have the ability to delete the browsing history Facebook collects, much in the way that browsers like Apple's Safari and Google's Chrome allow people to clear their tracking cookies. "Your Facebook won't be as good while it relearns your preferences." he said.

The big news of the morning was that Facebook is adding dating to the Facebook app.

"We designed this with privacy and safety in mind", said Zuckerberg.

Cambridge Analytica and data privacy continued to factor into Zuckerberg's presentation even after his prepared remarks on privacy.

He said it would be created to build "meaningful, long-term relationships", rather than "just for hook-ups", citing the "200 million people on Facebook that list themselves as single" as evidence of potential demand for the new feature. Your dating profile will only show your first name, and will only be visible to other people on the dating service, so your Facebook friends won't see your dating activity.
