Facebook Apparently Collects Data On Non-Users As Well

Facebook Apparently Collects Data On Non-Users As Well

"Congress is good at two things: doing nothing, and overreacting", Rep. Billy Long, a Republican representing Missouri, told Zuckerberg in a hearing Wednesday.

This is what makes Facebook so great: It knows everything about you! "We're getting ready to overreact". When we first contacted Cambridge Analytica, they told us that they had deleted the data.

She understands the concern over data privacy but said deleting Facebook is too high a price to pay.

"It's pretty obvious to me that someone is listening to the audio on our phones", Buschon said.

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. "But I think the details on this really matter".

For some reason shadow profiles rarely came up during the hearing the past two days but New Mexico Senator Ben Lujan had clearly done his homework. Others asked the CEO about Facebook's restriction of a page belonging to pro-Trump vloggers "Diamond and Silk". You don't know how many apps you need to audit.

But even in this hesitant camp, lawmakers showed a willingness to do just that. Beginning this Monday, Facebook has started to notify those users whose data have been breached. On Tuesday, he took questions for almost five hours in a US Senate hearing without making any further promises to support new legislation or change how the social network does business, foiling attempts by senators to pin him down. Zuckerberg had to explain several times that Facebook doesn't do that. "There is no doubt that consumer protection is a winning issue for both parties this year". Sandberg had informed her "that Facebook is working on improving transparency on political advertising and showed openness to cooperate with European Union regulators on all these issues", Jourova said.

Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA) Eye Catching Volume Move in Focus
It has outperformed by 56.74% the S&P500.The move comes after 5 months negative chart setup for the $442.33 billion company. The Jericho Capital Asset Management Lp holds 807,110 shares with $139.17 million value, up from 444,513 last quarter.

At the same time, Zuckerberg was not willing to let that erode Facebook's fundamental model, in which advertisers make use of the massive data the social network collects on its users - what they like and dislike, where they go, who they link to - to pinpoint marketing targets. The sessions also featured presentations from Facebook's researchers on privacy challenges, as well as ways the company might protect user data.

Ahead of Tuesday's hearing, the activist group Avaaz set up life-sized cutouts of Zuckerberg wearing a "Fix Facebook" T-shirt on the Capitol lawn, urging him to do more to root out fake accounts and "bots". Facebook recently moved to label all political and issues ads. "You can also load all of that".

Aleksandr Kogan, the academic who harvested Facebook data for Cambridge Analytica, also took users' private messages. When Zuckerberg said that no because those messages are encrypted, Sen. Some people are downloading their data to see exactly what information Facebook has collected about them. That's very true with Facebook.

Zuckerberg was adamant that AI would iron out problems of regulating content in the future. The data collection didn't violate any rules.

Instead, the more imminent regulatory threat to Facebook in the US may not come from sweeping new bills in Congress, but from an old agreement with the FTC.

Facebook has been making changes to the way it allows third-party apps to access data. The FTC confirmed last month that it's investigating Facebook.
