Facebook CEO Zuckerberg's Compensation Up By 54% In 2017

Data miners are minding our business, so what do we do about it? Facebook scandal: First Australian Cambridge Analytica data breach victim says she is 'in shock'

Facebook said in a statement that the security measures were quite important due to Zuckerberg's position within the company. The GDPR, aimed at bringing stronger data protection and more data privacy for citizens of the European Union, also has implications for USA firms that have a presence there. While Zuckerberg was grandstanding about the right of users to have control over their data and his hope that Facebook would be a platform for "all ideas", the consequences of his company's conciliatory policies toward governments continued to affect individuals' right to free expression in places like Turkey and Russian Federation.

Sarnecki said the fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal could keep spreading for years to come.

Amid a revamp following the breakout of the data breach scandal involving Cambridge Analytica and Facebook, the social media giant announced a facelift for its "Bookmarks" section to facilitate easy access and navigation of settings. He brushed off suggestions that Facebook has built a monopoly but didn't identify the company's competitors.

Kennedy said one obstacle to protections is social media outlets such as Facebook do not fit neatly into the traditional types of industries Congress normally regulates. He didn't mention whether those other apps included Facebook's own Messenger, as well as Instagram and WhatsApp, which are also both owned by Facebook.

Phocuswright analyst Mark Blutstein said some users might leave Facebook as a result, but the only way to measure that will be looking at average daily and monthly users when the company releases quarterly financial information in the future.

Zuckerberg emphasised that Facebook will always offer a free version of its network. That strategy generated $40 billion in ad revenue for Facebook last year, helping to make it one of the world's most valuable companies just 14 years after Zuckerberg started the business in his Harvard dorm room. Facebook has responded by saying that it has no plans to develop a method to allow non-users to see the data about them collected by the company.

Google's Redesign of Gmail to Include a 'Confidential Mode'
Google has provided information related to new design and possible features to its G Suite administrators recently. As the name suggests, the tool will help users who want to be extra cautious about how their emails are accessed.

Earlier this week, Facebook also set up a page in its Help Center to show each user if Cambridge Analytica harvested their Facebook profile to allegedly create targeted political ads.

With Partner Categories gone, however, an advertiser now can simply pay for that same third-party data outside of Facebook and pair it with Facebook user data - under a different Facebook service called "Custom Audiences". "Don't say we already do what GDPR requires", one passage from his cheat sheet reminded him.

The wholesale, planet-wide exploitation of personal data has dark implications, Tufekci said: "We could enter into a phase of "surveillance authoritarianism, ' where we don't face (George Orwell's) '1984" model, where there's open totalitarianism, where we're dragged off in the middle of the night". Scalise, though, asked if the data is also used as part of Facebook's business. Zuckerberg said everyone who uses Facebook consents to what they agree to share, and has complete control of it.

The new features introduced by Facebook serve as effort to inform users on the information accessed on the site, following a recent congressional hearing where Zuckerberg answered questions regarding how the site utilizes user information. Lujan asked if these are what is known as "shadow profiles", but Zuckerberg said he is "not familiar" with that term. While it is owned by Facebook, he said Instagram is a powerful marketing platform.

Facebook gets some data on non-users from people on its network, such as when a user uploads email addresses of friends.
