Zuckerberg flubs details of Facebook privacy commitments

He was confident. He capably tackled numerous queries proposed last week by Bloomberg columnists. Zuckerberg's success is a win for anyone primarily concerned with the company's market value.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before a joint hearing of the Commerce and Judiciary committees on Capitol Hill in Washington on April 10 about the use of Facebook users' data to target USA voters in the 2016 election. The first was with Sen.

Earlier this week, the company announced the launch of the Data Abuse Bounty to reward Facebook users who report any misuse of data by app developers. Zuckerberg answered with "Senator, there has not".

What Facebook retained about me isn't remotely as creepy as the sheer number of advertisers that have my information in their databases. The data he transferred is utilized to make shadow profiles for both Ijaz and Sadia - so that if either goes along with, they will be recommended Ali as a companion.

The physical presence (in Zurich) of Internet giants such as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft means that they are already adequately taxed here, Maurer said.

Facebook's stocks were also up during the hearings as well.

Since news broke last month that the political data firm Cambridge Analytica had accessed the private data of millions of Facebook users to influence voter opinion in the 2016 election, the social media platform has been the center of a national debate about consumer protection and privacy. The Facebook CEO knows what his company does, but perhaps he couldn't acknowledge that his companies relies on assembling detailed dossiers on billions of people. But that is precisely why Facebook is one of the most valuable companies in the world. When Sen. Ron Johnson asked "With all this publicity, have you documented any kind of backlash from Facebook users?" Facebook's reasoning is that there is little transparency and control over how third-party data is collected and used, and whether consumers have even consented to their data being shared. The trick is few people really understand what they're giving, or are capable of truly controlling it. Zuckerberg seemed to concede as much after a lawmaker brandished a stack of papers said to be Facebook's data collection and ad policy disclosures to its users. Any violations of the 2011 agreement could subject Facebook to fines of $41,484 per violation per user per day.

By the time the question was framed and Zuckerberg's response was given, it was too late to follow up and try to pin Zuckerberg down, the congressman said.

Will Easton, the head of Facebook in Australia and New Zealand, hasn't been able to say whether Australians' data was involved in the data mining.

"The Facebook situation will be a wakeup call for companies that are working in the tech industry and dealing with data-which is really all companies these days", said Fiona J. McEvoy, a tech ethics researcher at You the Data, a platform for discussing the societal impact of technology in San Francisco.

Facebook could voluntarily change the rules of the game.

A recently released poll from shows that the public is rapidly losing faith in Facebook following recent revelations that data analysis firm Cambridge Analytica used the social media platform to gain access to the personal data of 50 million users.

Those changes could dramatically curtail Facebook's power and its revenue - and that's the point.
