Facebook under fire due to Russian security breach

Facebook under fire due to Russian security breach

According to Facebook, this program will reward those with first-hand knowledge and proof of cases where a Facebook platform app collects and transfers user data to another party to be sold, stolen, or used for scams or political influence.

He said users should think twice before giving apps access to their Facebook accounts.

According to Tech Crunch, the changes are focused on centralising a variety of controls that were previously located in other places.

For many years, we believed that all Facebook has been doing is helping advertisers target a particular group of people, based on demographics and personal preferences.

When you visit a site or app that uses our services, we receive information even if you're logged out or don't have a Facebook account. Now, that action is specifically prohibited by Facebook in the terms of service they have for app and quiz developers.

Most of this isn't new information, but it's part of Facebook's initiative to be more transparent with the government and its users about how the data it collects is shared. "But of course we can do more to help people understand how Facebook works and the choices they have".

Trump Blasts China, Russia for Devaluing Currencies as Fed Hikes
Russian defence ministry said that no U.S. or allied missiles had entered Russian air defence zones in Syria yet. Meanwhile, leaders from the U.S., France and Britain have said the Syrian government was responsible.

Facebook said it has partnered with BOOM, an independent digital journalism initiative certified through the International Fact-Checking Network, for a pilot in Karnataka.

"But unlike Cambridge Analytica and its peers, who must content themselves with whatever data they can extract from Facebook's public interfaces, Facebook is sitting on the motherload, with unfettered access to staggering databases of behavior and preferences", Biddle notes. In 2012, Facebook agreed to stop using face recognition technology in the European Union after Caspar, the Hamburg data protection commissioner, accused it of violating German and European privacy regulations by collecting users' biometric facial data without their explicit consent.

During his testimony, Zuckerberg responded to a question asked by U.S. representative that his company tracks the data of non-Facebook users for security purposes.

During the two-day hearing, members of the U.S. House and Senate peppered Zuckerberg with questions about Facebook from data collection to privacy concerns. Obviously, these data would have come from using Google products: gmail.com, YouTube, Chrome, Google+, Hangout, the Android operating system on your phone, and perhaps any data supplied to apps that run on your phone.

Zuckerberg squirmed when pressed about a 2011 agreement with the Federal Trade Commission that was created to force Facebook to tighten its privacy controls. So when you delete something, the platform just removes it so it's not visible or accessible on Facebook! They then measured the impact on the positiveness or negativeness of those users' own posts. This is something that Facebook has allowed you to do for several years, but it takes on a new urgency in the aftermath of multiple Facebook data breaches by no fewer than three outside firms.
