Facebook users still waiting on privacy scandal notices

Data mining has been going on for decades

In testimony prepared for an appearance before the US House of Representatives, he said Facebook didn't do enough to prevent its tools from being used for harm, especially in terms of fake news, foreign interference in elections, hate speech, developer policies and data privacy.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who is scheduled to testify to Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday, long defined the company's mission as making the world more open and connected.

He says he plans to question Zuckerberg about the breach of data and an agreement. GBH said it had conducted surveys that estimated almost 15 per cent of Facebook users had curtailed their activity on the platform in recent weeks because of the data privacy concerns.

For anyone wondering about Zuckerberg's possible political ambitions, Tuesday's hearing will be an opportunity to see how he handles the spotlight.

"We didn't take a broad enough view of what our responsibility is, and that was a huge mistake", Zuckerberg said during a press call. I don't want to regulate them half to death", said Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana, a member of the Judiciary Committee "But we have a problem.

Facebook faces a mushrooming crisis of confidence among users, advertisers, employees and investors after acknowledging that up to 87 million people, mostly in the United States, had their personal information harvested from the site by Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy that has counted U.S. President Donald Trump among its clients. "This is a new model of collaboration between researchers and companies, and it's part of our commitment to protect the integrity of elections around the world".

Zuckerberg said in his testimony that Facebook's major investments in security "will significantly impact our profitability going forward".

5.3 magnitude natural disaster strikes off southern California coast
The temblor was felt as far away as Los Angeles, Bakersfield, Palmdale and the city of Orange, according to local media reports. The institute said the natural disaster was centered about 15 miles southeast of the nest.

Zuckerberg also addressed Russian election interference and acknowledged, as he has in the past, that the company was too slow to respond and that it's "working hard to get better". The meetings included a session with Florida Sen.

Something or other must be for sale, or Facebook is the first company to rocket to the top ranks of corporate America based on having no product or profit motive.

Carey says the new steps may guard our data in the future but what we've done in the past on Facebook is already out there.

Facebook's logo appears on screens at the Nasdaq MarketSite in New York's Times Square, on March 29, 2018.

Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg said as many as 146 million people may have received information from a Russian agency that's accused of orchestrating much of the cyber-meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Bill Nelson, the top Democrat on the Commerce Committee, as a cluster of reporters waited outside.

He cited targeted ads as a boon to consumers and said the data behind them can boost artificial intelligence systems, which use vast quantities of data to "learn" human-like behavior. Stucke, for instance, said a much stronger move would be for Facebook to fold U.S. users into the more stringent data protections the European Union will impose on internet companies starting May 25. Nelson said it would be "very difficult" to impose regulations, particularly during the current administration. Facebook was bound by that order to provide users with clear information about their privacy settings, to prevent sharing of their data beyond what they agreed to permit, and also to proactively look for threats to data privacy and find ways to remedy them.
