The Philippines National Privacy Commission said in a letter sent to Mark Zuckerberg on April 11; "We acknowledge the communications of your global and regional representatives made directly to our office". One, Zuckerberg revealed he was among the 87 million Facebook users whose data was improperly accessed by the political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.
Prodded by the Cambridge scandal, the FTC is now investigating whether Facebook violated their agreement. The ad model of the company came under heat during the Facebook hearings this week because of its targeted advertisements. Instead, he asserted without elaborating that "the average American uses eight different apps to communicate with their friends and stay in touch with people". They also questioned Facebook's rejection of an ad from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio, that depicted the crucifixion of Jesus.
It's thought this would allow people to use the popular service without seeing adverts or worrying who might be gaining access to their personal data.
But the masses weren't questioning all that before the Cambridge Analytica news broke.
Zuckerberg assures Congress that Facebook is not listening to users' conversations
Facebook is often quite deliberate in its characterisations of "your data", rejecting the notion that it "owns" user data. Laidlaw suggested that Canada needs to step up and follow Europe's lead when it comes to regulation and privacy laws.
With the pressure mounting on the social network, some are speculating that Facebook may soon launch a paid-for version of the platform alongside its current free offering. Facebook's main product hasn't changed that much in recent years, so perhaps, like Zuckerberg, they're reminiscing about a time when the company was run out of a Harvard dorm room and the key feature was the "poke". Companies that scrape data, use malware to get people to install apps and non-Facebook cases are not eligible. "It's good that we have stringent rules in the European Union".
Citizens can not be stopped from accessing services of companies amassing huge data like Facebook and Google and the only way to safeguard interests is to ask them to store the data domestically, a senior official from the government's cybersecurity body said. While this week the Silicon Valley giant's stock has experience a modest recovery as its CEO appears calm and collected in front of US lawmakers, the high-flying FAANG stock saw roughly $100 billion shaved off its market capitalization in the weeks following its latest data crisis.
"We hope this update, similar to the ones we've been making recently, will help people navigate Facebook more easily so they can continue to connect with the people, Pages and Groups they log on to see".
After Zuckerberg said he didn't know, Lujan enlightened him.
