Facebook's Zuckerberg to testify before US House Commerce panel on April 11

The new shortcut allows a user to manage their account's privacy settings conveniently without making much effort. The firm was hired by U.S. President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, which paid the firm almost $6 million.

Zuckerberg's upcoming testimony comes after senior Facebook officials failed to answer questions during a private meeting with congressional staffers about how the company and third-party software developers use and protect consumer data.

Cambridge Analytica has been suspended from Facebook, pending further information and Facebook is apparently working to better its security and privacy game by offering new set of tools that will supposedly make things easier for end-users and hard for miscreants looking to exploit their data.

After criticism over his initial silence following the Cambridge Analytica news, Zuckerberg has been on a press tour within the past few weeks, talking to CNNMoney, Vox and The New York Times, among others, and most recently to Reuters.

Last week, CNN reported that Zuckerberg had "come to terms with the fact that he will have to testify before Congress" and had started planning for it. Rather, a breach of trust, which is why it's working round the clock - now - to ensure such a thing doesn't happen again.

Facebook has said the data was harvested by Aleksandr Kogan, a psychology academic, who created an app on the platform that was downloaded by 270,000 people.

Strong shooting by several Nets (Harris, Carroll and Dinwiddie) wasn't enough as the 76ers lead continued to grow in the third. The last time these teams met, January 5th 2018, Philadelphia 76ers beat 114-78 (PHI outscores DET by 30 in first half).

Facebook requested the data of 50 million users be deleted from its database, but allegedly never followed-up to check its users' information was safely disposed of. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has told the news agency that Facebook would like to make the privacy protections put in place by the European General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, law in spirit but would make exceptions.

"But I think this was clearly a mistake in retrospect". We expect we will find more, and if we do we will take them down too.

Back in September, Facebook announced that it had discovered and removed many notorious and fraudulent profiles and pages, most of which were extolling Donald J. Trump, bashing Hillary Clinton or simply spreading instigating memes and comments on divisive and volatile issues such as race, guns, and immigration.

"This isn't rocket science".

In the USA, the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election is also ongoing.
