Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Breaks Silence on Cambridge Analytica Leak

Intense media attention has focused on consulting firm Cambridge Analytica and reports of its methods to access data from more than 50 million Facebook users.

After dipping 9 percent since the New York Times reported the leak on Friday, shares of Facebook ticked up about 0.75 percent in Wednesday trading.

With Facebook mired in its worst-ever crisis, the rest of Silicon Valley is looking to come to terms with the dark side of its data-driven business model where tech titans have mined fortunes from what people reveal online. Facebook apologized and said it would be examining every app, but the controversy has renewed interest in all sorts of privacy concerns surrounding the social media site. Let's not forget about those quizzes claiming to be able to tell you your "Top 3 Personality Traits", or something.

How much information does Facebook actually know about you?

Tap on "Platform." This is where you can tap "edit" to turn the apps feature on or off entirely.

In a future update to its Login tool, Facebook will also restrict the data that unapproved apps can see to your name, photo and email address. It is plausible that some were moved to vote for Trump by postings or ads based on the data Kogan gave Cambridge Analytica. They provided these certifications.

There are signs the crisis could spread to other internet firms that have made no secret about using what they glean from digital data for targeted advertising.

"And there are going to be some new tactics that we need to make sure that we observe and get in front of", he added. That said, those people are likely sharing a lot more information than they realize.

Before deleting your account, you can download your personal data and save it on your own computer. We will ban any developer from our platform that does not agree to a thorough audit.

Supposedly and according to Facebook, the information is to provide, develop and improve services, communicate with the user, show and measure ads and services and promote safety and security. They can use these data points to accurately predict your hobbies, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, ethnicity, education, approximate income and political views.

Second, we will restrict developers' data access even further to prevent other kinds of abuse. Tap on an app and scroll down to "Remove App" if you'd like to delete it. The minister said his ministry has been watching the ongoing developments and might summon Zuckerberg if required. And we'll have more changes to share in the next few days.

"This is a massive focus for us to make sure we're dialled in for not only the 2018 elections in the United States, but the Indian elections, the Brazilian elections, and a number of other elections that are going on this year that are really important", Zuckerberg said.

And the real threat here "is exactly what happened", Wilson said.

"I'm serious about doing what it takes to protect our community", Zuckerberg wrote.
