"We should have been faster, and are working hard to improve our technology and tools to detect and prevent abusive, hateful or false content". "Facebook is using it so that it can sell ads". Human rights organizers have been complaining about the company's lack of a serious reporting system for years.

While I understand that a large function of this is attributable to the fact that Facebook is still nailing down details on this I would like to request clarification on what you mean when you said that it should directionally be, in spirit, the whole thing. Later in the interview, Guthrie tried to pin down Sandberg on this point.

"That was something we should have caught, we should have known about", she told NPR. But it seems unlikely that Cambridge Analytica is alone in accruing this much data - which it supposedly obtained via personality quizzes shared on Facebook - and it seems unlikely that it is alone in abusing this data, as well. That's correct: the company monopolizes access to that information, which is the even more invidious move.

Companies including USA auto parts retailer Pep Boys, internet company Mozilla and German bank Commerzbank AG have suspended advertisement on the platform. The feature allows users, with the full knowledge of the other participants, to set their messages to expire after a set time.

Facebook announced Friday (Apr 6) it will require political ads on its platform to state who is paying for the message and would verify the identity of the payer, in a bid to curb outside election interference.

Zuckerberg has claimed Facebook is taking steps to protect user data. Around a half million each in India and Vietnam and 300,000 in Australia may also have been exposed. In nearly the next breath, however, Zuckerberg steered clear of endorsing a bill that would write such rules into federal law, and instead talked up Facebook's own voluntary efforts on that front.

There is nothing wrong in researchers using anonymised data from Facebook and other sources for analytics and analysis.

The Internet Research Agency, the Kremlin-linked troll farm that has used Facebook and other social media in an attempt to meddle in USA politics, created Pages meant to look like they were run by real American activists.

"When the timer runs out, the message would disappear from both their and the recipients' inboxes", it reported. But once downloaded, the file was in a disarray, a sort of scrambled version of my user informationthat included images, messages, tags, etc.

Facebook confessed to TechCrunch that they have been doing this for a while.

Prior to the most recent revelations, the social network had been coolly defiant about serving as a vehicle for malicious actors to carry out fake news campaigns and clog the newsfeed of its users. It's a good but very modest list. Facebook builds a profile on each individual user based on every single piece of data it can collect on the Facebook site, in the Facebook app, and even sometimes around the web thanks to tracking cookies.
