Noah Theran, spokesman for the Internet Association, a trade group that counts Facebook and Salesforce among its members, though not Apple and IBM, said maintaining privacy and security was a top priority for internet companies. Facebook's tactics were also an unpleasant reminder of the way it and other huge corporations - including Google and Apple - have avoided paying tax with the same offshore jurisdiction defence. More than 100 websites use the tool at launch, including CNN and TripAdvisor.

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, who is already facing a public relations crisis over accusations that the company mishandled millions of users' private data, disavowed the memo.

Facebook also did not answer a question about whether it would make its entire platform compliant with the new regulation or have different standards for Europe and for users in countries such as the United States, where there is no general data law.

Beacon is officially shut down, settling Lane's class action lawsuit.

Even if you've never specifically identified your political affiliation on Facebook, the social network can make a pretty good guess about where on the spectrum you land.

2010: App-makers exhibit a sophisticated grasp of data they can scoop from Facebook's social graph.

In a Facebook post and an appearance on CNN, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologized for the controversy and vowed to do more to protect user data.

BuzzFeed noted that the memo was written nearly immediately after a man was shot to death while streaming live video of himself with Facebook Live, and a few days before a Palestinian teenager was accused of killing an Israeli girl after praising terrorists on Facebook. These ads were creating the information of users without knowing them.

What hasn't changed, at least so far, is Facebook's privacy policies.

Facebook said these companies had "your contact info" but didn't spell out how extensive that was - just email or phone number and address as well?

Facebook promises to submit to a privacy audit every two years for the next 20 years, and Zuckerberg owns up to mistakes. " Cook took the opportunity to emphasize Apple's message about user privacy, noting the company sells products to people, "it doesn't sell users to advertisers". Additionally, it will be more transparent about the data it collects, the company vows. The company still plans to market your interests, likes and other personal data point, just as it has in the past.

The Facebook VP also acknowledged the potentially risky impacts of Facebook, stating that: "Maybe it costs a life by exposing someone to bullies".

Here is what Facebook users have to do in order to safeguard their data before it vanishes in thin air. The Cambridge Analytica mess happened exactly because Facebook was looking to lure in developers with more of your data. The fall out of the Cambridge Analytica data scandal has been disastrous.

It rolls out "Security Checkup", a new tool aimed at simplifying its convoluted and confusing privacy controls.

Over the years, here's how it has been for us users in light of the exposé on how Facebook's data had been harvested for political pofiling by Cambridge Analytica, the data analytics firm that worked for Donald Trump's presidential campaign. I asked if Facebook would scan uploaded user lists and try to match them against a database of suspicious data, but for now it sounds more like Facebook will merely require a written promise.
