Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Agrees to Testify Over Cambridge Analytica-Maybe

There's no way to know.

Most recently, when Facebook was summoned to Capitol Hill to explain how Russian sources used the social network to try and influence public opinion ahead of the 2016 presidential campaign, Facebook sent its top lawyer to the hearing, not Zuckerberg.

Israel's Justice Ministry said Thursday that an investigation has been launched into Facebook's leak of personal information of Israeli users.

One collects user-generated content, such as status updates and photos.

"When you delete your account, all the user-generated content is normally erased (although there are small exceptions), while all the log data is preserved - forever". "We have a responsibility to protect your data - and if we can't, then we don't deserve to serve you".

The big concern for Facebook investors is that Congress will impart stricter regulations on the social giant.

Cambridge Analytica, best known for working on President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, is at the center of an worldwide storm over privacy and political manipulation. For some reason, Mark Zuckerberg is unsure if he fits that bill.

He also said he would limit the data available to developers.

"We are encouraged that Mark Zuckerberg has promised to improve the privacy settings and make them more protective", Dixon wrote.

Mozilla has been particularly vocal about Facebook's role in allowing 50 million users to have their private data harvested by Cambridge Analytica without their knowledge and consent. How has Facebook verified that the collected data is used exclusively for purposes provided by developers (including academic entities) and not improperly used or shared?

Zuckerberg also revealed a number of steps Facebook was now undertaking. And it's unclear how that policy is enforced.

Zuckerberg admitted the company screwed up in the wake of a data breach involving 50 million Americans, fake news and a shadowy data harvesting company.

"If the industry can't solve these kinds of problems by themselves, then we'll have to solve them with legislation", says Sen. You can't take it back.

People have been convinced to share extraordinary amounts of information about themselves (and their families) with a platform whose sole business is to let advertisers target people based on that information. That includes people whose data Kogan misused here as well.

Zuckerberg is now pledging to further restrict developers' access to user data, including automatically removing access for any app the user hasn't opened in at least three months.
