Mark Zuckerberg has apologised for the mistakes Facebook has made

Since revelations came of the sale and abuse of personal data of over 50 million Facebook users Zuckerberg has been summoned by multiple governments to personally explain the causes as well as the preventive measures Facebook has taken for the future.

On March 20 the committee issued the invitation to Zuckerberg to attend the fake news inquiry after whistleblower Christopher Wylie revealed how UK-based data firm Cambridge Analytica (CA) had harvested details of 50 million Facebook users.

Here users can activate two-factor authentication, select ad preferences, and review posts that have been shared or reacted to, as well as Facebook searches.

USA lawmakers were seeking to haul Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to Washington to testify on the matter.

It had been requested that Mark Zuckerberg appear before Congress but today the Chief Executive Officer declined Congress' request.

Despite the doom and gloom of it all, Roberts believes Facebook's scandal has a silver lining.

After sending notice to the United Kingdom -based Cambridge Analytica last week, the Government of India has now sent a notice to Facebook amid controversy over misuse of its users' data.

She said Facebook has "some of the best talent in the industry" and that "their old interface was not a mistake, it was by design". Go the top right corner of your page (on a desktop) and click the down facing arrow located to the right of the question mark. "We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can't then we don't deserve to serve you", he wrote on his Facebook page.

In any case, if you're curious to see exactly what data Facebook has on you, the firm offers a tool for downloading and viewing all your data from its site.

Three Messenger users have sued Facebook in a class action suit alleging that the social media giant has violated their privacy by scraping data of their phone calls and text messages. "We will need to monitor companies such as Facebook much more strictly in future and also punish breaches of data protection strongly, swiftly and painfully". They accuse Facebook of designing its software to make it easier for brokers to discriminate against families with children, mothers and those with disabilities. One of them can be available after the parliament's Easter recess, Facebook said.

Australians are one of the biggest users of Facebook's Messenger service, with 13m users as of October past year.
